When you charter a private jet to Dallas you'll arrive at the Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport (also known as DFW). This is the main entry point into the state of Texas and is located roughly halfway between Dallas and Fort Worth. With about 63.5 million passengers in 2014 the airport is ranked as the ninth busiest in the world based on the number of passengers.
In terms of size and scope, the airport covers about than 26.9 square miles and has 147 domestic and 55 international destinations. That makes it the worldâ€™s third busiest airport in terms of aircraft movements.
The fact that DFW is a large and busy airport does not translate to slow and inefficient services. As a matter of fact, it is one of the most convenient because its portions spill across Tarrant and Texas counties; reaching multiple cities like Dallas, Euless, Irving, Coppell, and Grapevine. It is even more convenient when you fly in a private jet as that translates to very quick service at the airport.
Customer service at the airport is all-rounded and includes facilities like hotels, restaurants, bars, taxi services, and waiting bays for those who are waiting for travelers or their flights.
The city of Dallas has plenty to offer its visitors. Despite its humble beginnings, the city has grown to become a major business and tourist attraction. It owes its origins to John Neely Bryan who built himself a hut in northeastern Texas (at the banks of Trinity River). Although settlement increased with time, the city was still overshadowed by Fort Worth. It is only after the civil war and the coming of the railroad in 1873 that it grew rapidly. The cityâ€™s economy was highly dependent on agriculture and the situation only changed a couple of decades ago (after WWII) when it started to host several insurance companies and banks.
If your visit is restricted to the city center, you are likely to enjoy the marvelous architecture that is characterized by modern and post-modern structures (like the Kirby Building). However, if your schedule is flexible enough, you can visit other mind-blowing attractions such as museums and art centers where you will learn about various cultures that have been reserved over the years.
