Dallas Fort Worth Airport Car Rental
Dallas Fort Worth Airport is among the busiest airports for passenger traffic in the world. The idea of equipping the Texan city with an airport took hold at the end of the 1920s and in 1940 the first funds were allocated for the construction of the airport, located in the close Fort Worth.
Originally, the airport was used for military purposes and only in the 1950s it was turned into an exclusively civil airport. Later, the airport underwent many enlargement and improvement works, becoming one of the reference airports throughout the United States of America.
