Dallas Fort Worth International Airport (DFW)
Guarenteed not to disappoint you, DFW lives up to its name as one of the largest airports in the world. Because of its Central location in the US, its relatively warm weather, and the wide open spaces known as the Texas plain, DFW seems to be an ideal location to link your travel needs.
The airport consists of 5 separate terminals, with 4 of the terminals being dominated by American Airlines. Terminals A,B,C, and D are primarilly American, and terminal E is most other carriers. Terminal D contains all the international flights.
If you are travelling during peak times, please do give yourself at least an hour before flight time to get through security if you know what you are doing, or two hours if you are not a steady traveller.
DFW is the closest airport to Denton, and is easily reached by traveling south on I-35 to State Highway 121 and on to the airport.
UNT Transportation Services and the Link
The UNT buses serve the students at the university. It provides transportation around campus, to certain off-campus housing, and the mall. It also connects up with the city's bus system, called the Link. While you will be able to go to different places around campus, don't expect to be able to really go anywhere else in town. The public transportation system in Denton is very limited.
