The Terminal Renewal and Improvement Programme (TRIP) at Dallas Fort Worth (DFW) International Airport in Texas, US, has opened a newly renovated section at Terminal B that includes six gates.

The new section will provide improved amenities and more parking space for travellers.

It is a part of the $2.7bn terminal renovation and improvement programme initiated by the airport in 2011. The programme aims at renovating the four original terminals, A, B, C and E, which opened in 1974.

The new renovations at Terminal B include gates B4 through B11, along with a corresponding security checkpoint, a ticketing hall and two baggage claim counters.

After the second phase of the project, Terminal B will feature two new passenger entries with elevator access and an adjacent parking garage accommodating 1,800 vehicles.

The new garage will be connected to gate B9 via a covered walkway .

DFW Airport Development and Planning executive vice-president Khaled Naja said: "Transforming the travel experience of our customers is a key priority for DFW.

"Since the inception of TRIP, we've brought in new concessions and amenities, completed the new parking facilities and implemented new technology tools for passengers."

"The progress we've made in all of our terminals during TRIP continues to enhance our overall customer experience, and as we move toward the completion of more phases, more and more customers are seeing the results of our work."

Expected to be finished by early 2017, the next phase of renovations, which include six more gates along with a parking section, will continue in Terminal B.

The last phase of work on gates B12 through B17 is scheduled for completion by the end of 2017.

Naja added: "We are grateful to our customers and their patience with us throughout this journey.

"Since the inception of TRIP, we've brought in new concessions and amenities, completed the new parking facilities and implemented new technology tools for passengers throughout our terminals."
