DFW Airport ready for the busiest Thanksgiving travel season in the airport's 40 years

It's the start of the busiest travel period and Dallas/Fort Worth Airport says its ready with giant snow-globes and luggage porters.

The airport predicts that this will be the busiest holiday season ever in its 40 year history. More than 2.25 million passengers are expected to travel through DFW between November 20 and December 2, a 1.4 percent increase over last year.

"Millions of customers will be traveling through DFW Airport this holiday season, and it is our mission to make the journey as easy and cheerful as possible," said airport chief executive Sean Donohue in a statement.

DFW recently reopened 44 renovated gates as part of its terminal redevelopment program. The new gates are in Terminals A, B and E and are ready for the holidays.

To help customers relax during their holiday trip, the airport willl have luggage porters to assist customers in the parking garages and will offer complimentary coffee vouchers to its valet parking users and DART passengers.

It is also adding giant walk-in snow globes in each of its five terminals where passengers can climb in and take a holiday photo as part of its "Cheer Starts Here!" campaign.
