Buttigieg highlights airport projects for increased safety and efficiency

Federal Government Invests in Improvements at Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport to Increase Safety

The federal government is investing more money in improvements at Dallas-Fort Worth International and other airports to enhance safety by reducing the number of times planes on the ground must taxi across active runways. Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg recently announced the investment, which will be used to upgrade infrastructure and implement new technologies.

Benefits of the Investment

  • Increased safety for passengers and crew
  • Reduced risk of collisions on the runway
  • Improved efficiency and reduced delays
  • Enhanced airport infrastructure

The investment will be used to construct new taxiways and improve existing ones, as well as install new runway status lights that will improve visibility for pilots and air traffic controllers. The new lights will indicate when it is safe to cross a runway and when it is not, reducing the risk of runway incursions.

The investment will also fund the implementation of new technologies, such as a new ground radar system that will provide real-time information on the location of aircraft and ground vehicles. This will help prevent collisions and improve the efficiency of ground operations.

Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport

Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport is one of the busiest airports in the world, serving over 69 million passengers annually. The airport is a major hub for American Airlines and serves as a gateway to destinations around the world.

The investment in Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport is part of a larger effort by the federal government to improve airport infrastructure and enhance safety. The investment will help ensure that the airport can continue to provide efficient and safe operations for years to come.
