Most airlines already have their own smartphone app; now the airports are getting in on the action. Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport (DFW) has launched a free app that gives passengers up-to-the-minute information on flights, parking, shopping, restaurants and other airport services.

One feature shows you what food and shopping outlets are available within five minutes of a particular boarding gate—handy when you’re rushing to catch your flight and want to grab a magazine or sandwich en route. On request, the app will also deliver “push notifications” to automatically alert you when your flight details change.

“The DFW Airport mobile app has everything a passenger needs to make a trip through DFW faster and more efficient,” said Ken Buchanan, the airport’s executive vice president for revenue management.

DFW sought extensive passenger feedback to help guide the app’s development. During a two-month trial period last year, over 100 travelers enlisted as volunteer beta testers.

The DFW Airport App is available for iOS, Android, and Blackberry devices.
