American Airlines New Look Arrives at DFW International Airport Terminal A

FORT WORTH, Texas – The fresh, new look of American Airlines is taking off at Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport. Today, American and DFW Airport announced the completion of Terminal A – Phase 1 under the Terminal Renewal Improvement Program (TRIP). The Phase I opening includes gates A8 through A16, including the check-in and entrance area, as well as the parking structure adjacent to these gates, and is designed to increase customer convenience and satisfaction by offering a more intuitive airport experience.

**Today we take another important step forward in our journey to build a more modern travel experience to better suit the needs of our customers,** said Kevin Cox, American*s Vice President – Real Estate. **DFW Terminal A – Phase 1 sets the stage for future next generation airport improvements, and will be a tremendous model for us to further refine how we integrate our new look and feel into our airports in the future.**

Numerous architectural, systems and engineering renovations have been made to create a more eco-friendly and aesthetically pleasing airport experience, while also being more customer-friendly. Some of the terminal enhancements include incorporating the bright, clean feel of American*s fresh new look announced in January.

Additional features for American Airlines customers include:

 An open layout to allow for continuous customer flow

 Power outlets and work tables at all gates

 Next-generation kiosks with self-tag capabilities for checked baggage

 Single-agent podiums to provide a more personalized experience

 A separate area for Priority check-in

Customers traveling through DFW Terminal A will also enjoy an expanded security area with new technology that will soon display wait times in real-time, as well as increased concession offerings with a variety of healthy dining options.

In 2011, DFW Airport Iaunched the first major construction phase of its $2.3 billion TRIP, a seven-year renovation of the airport*s four original terminals that opened in 1974. Renovations will take a phased approach for terminals A, B, C and E. American Unveils Its Next Generation Airport at DFW Terminal A March 26, 2013

**Today is a special day for DFW Airport and American Airlines, as we welcome passengers to our greatly improved Terminal A,** said Jeff Fegan, CEO of DFW Airport. **With new concessions, reimagined passenger flows, updated finishes and a completely revamped section of Terminal A, DFW Airport is solidifying its place as one of the world*s top airports for customer service, and we stand ready to meet the needs of our passengers for the next 40 years.**

As TRIP moves forward, the American Airlines next generation airport concept will expand through DFW Terminals A, B and C. Additional upcoming next generation airports include LaGuardia Airport (LGA) later this year, with plans for further expansion to additional cities.
