Ease of air travel in and out of the Dallas-Fort Worth area was one of the factors in selecting Plano for Toyota North America’s new headquarters. Due to its central location and world-class transportation infrastructure, the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex is a major gateway for business and travel, which will be important for team members and associates moving to Plano, as well as those likely to make trips to our new headquarters.
DFW Airport: Quick Facts
- 4th busiest airport in the world (operations)
- Hosts 24 passenger airlines and 16 cargo carriers
- Serves nearly 150 domestic and 60 international destinations
- Covers 17,207 acres – larger than New York’s Manhattan
- Recently named Best Airport in North America by Premier Traveler magazine.
Located just over 20 miles from the future headquarters site, DFW International Airport is the country’s fourth-busiest airport with some 150 domestic routes and nearly 60 nonstop international connections. Thanks to its central location, travelers passing through the airport can access every major city in the continental U.S. within four hours. Fort Worth-based American Airlines has one of its hubs at DFW.
And travel in and around DFW just became easier thanks to a newly opened Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART) light rail station right at one of the busiest terminals of Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport. To learn more, watch this video from The Dallas Morning News. Adding the station to newly renovated Terminal A means more transportation options for travelers. The new five-mile DART segment links the airport and Belt Line Station, with continuing service to major regional destinations including Irving-Las Colinas, Dallas Market Center and downtown Dallas.
A smaller municipal airport, Dallas Love Field, is also about 20 miles from the company’s new headquarters location and is home to Southwest Airlines. A few weeks after the One Toyota announcement in April, Southwest announced several new nonstop markets, including Los Angeles and New York, for customers flying from Dallas Love Field. Also Virgin America has announced it was launching new business-friendly flights from Love Field to New York's LaGuardia Airport (LGA), Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport (DCA), Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) and San Francisco International Airport (SFO), starting October 2014. This means more direct connections – and carriers – to choose from for both business and personal travel
