DFW American Airlines Terminal E Satellite Renovation

The Terminal E Satellite was originally built in the 1980’s to serve Delta Air Lines. It is connected to the main Terminal E by an underground walkway. During the Terminal Renewal and Improvement Program (TRIP) the gates were used to house airlines displaced during renovations being completed on Terminal E.

Improvements were initiated by American Airlines which planned to move some regional flights from Terminal B to the Satellite. Improvements included six additional gates for a total of 15, new concessions, renovated hold room areas, new loading bridges, elevators, moving walkway and escalators along with American Airlines’ specific enhancements. A new Admirals Club was also completed. The 15 new gates now allow American Airlines to add roughly 100 flights bringing daily departures at DFW to 900 per day.
