If you plan to fly internationally out of DFW Airport, listen up. Terminal D is undergoing some much-needed upgrades that may impact your travel time.

What to expect

Known as the international terminal — and the place for airport shopping — Terminal D was constructed in 2005 for $1.2 billion.

Earlier this week, airport officials announced several new projects that are underway, including upgrades to the south lobby and checked baggage equipment.

The impacts on customers

The south lobby of Terminal D will be restricted until the project wraps up next spring and some of the check-in counters will be temporarily relocated.

Here’s how the new bag check-in process will work:

  1. Travelers will check their bags as usual at the airline’s counter.
  2. After the bag is checked, airline staff will direct customers to the center of the lobby to drop off their bags and complete the check-in process.
  3. Travelers can then proceed through the TSA checkpoints as usual.

American Airlines passengers flying out of Terminal D should use the alternate check-in area near D30.
