    New Rules for Drivers at DFW Airport
    NBC 5 News
    Curbside areas at Dallas Fort Worth International Airport will become "active loading and unloading zones" starting Sept. 8.

    Drivers picking up and dropping passengers off at Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport will have a new set of rules to follow starting in September, airport officials announced Wednesday.

    DFW Airport CEO Sean Donohue said curbside areas at all five terminals will become "active loading and unloading zones." That means drivers will no longer be allowed park their cars curbside while they wait to pick up passengers.

    The changes, which go into effect Sept. 8, are intended to decrease overall congestion and improve safety and security, Donohue said.

    "There are more vehicles than ever at the airport, and we want to keep traffic moving, while providing safer access to our terminals," he said. "These necessary changes will improve the overall customer experience as it relates to traffic flow, efficiencies and ease of navigation."
