The second-largest city in Texas, Dallas is a hive of business and cultural attractions, including a thriving telecom corridor, vibrant central business area and one of the most-lauded hospital districts in the state. Dallas is served by two local airports: Love Field and the Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport.
Travelers from Dallas Love Field are restricted by the Wright Amendment and cannot travel beyond an area encompassing Texas and surrounding states without connecting flights. Wright Amendment restrictions will expire in 2014, allowing commencement of nonstop service from Love Field to domestic locations like New York City. Currently, flyers who prefer the small airport atmosphere of Love Field can use Southwest Airlines to reach New York City's LaGuardia airport with connections in either Chicago or Baltimore. Love Field is located just north of downtown Dallas and is easily reached by taxis and local DART bus and rail service. Short- and long-term parking is available at the terminal and at remote lots on and off airport property.
The Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport is serviced by dozens of airlines and is located midway between the cities of Dallas and Fort Worth.
