The airport said the new gates, B30 through B39, will be used by American Eagle regional jets. The concourse extension is 20,000 square feet of gate space and replaced one gate at Terminal B, adding a net gain of nine gates to the terminal.
"These new gates give DFW Airport additional capacity for hosting flights in Terminal B, and a beautiful new space for customers to enjoy as they await their flights," said airport chief executive Sean Donohue in a statement.
With the extension, DFW now has 164 gates in five terminals. It is continuing to renovate its older terminals, A, B, C, and E as part of the seven-year $2.3 billion redevelopment project.
