 AFW Fort Worth Alliance Airport Info & Guide


Where is Fort Worth Alliance Airport?
Fort Worth Alliance Airport (IATA: AFW, ICAO: KAFW, FAA LID: AFW) is a city-owned public-use airport located 14 miles (23 km) north of the central business district of Fort Worth, city in Tarrant County, Texas, United States.


Billed as the world's first purely industrial airport, it was developed in a joint venture between the City of Fort Worth, the Federal Aviation Administration, and the Hillwood Development Company, a real estate development company owned by Ross Perot, Jr.


The official groundbreaking ceremonies were held in July 1988, and the airport officially opened on December 14, 1989. The airport is owned by the City of Fort Worth and managed by Alliance Air Services, a subsidiary of Hillwood Development, and is the second largest airport facility in North Texas, behind only Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport (DFW).


Alliance filled-in for Los Angeles International Airport during the filming of the TV drama LAX.


By the 1990s, the annual passenger air traffic at Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport had exceeded the airport's capacity, and a solution was proposed to repeal the Wright Amendment and open Alliance Airport to passenger service, effectively providing DFW with two reliever airports. But DFW opposed the solution and no passenger service was introduced at Alliance Airport.


In April 2004 Alliance Airport operating company Hillwood entered in to a management contract with EP-Team (Energy & Projects Team) for sales and marketing development to attract Cargo Airlines to the airport. EP-Team is a Project Freight/Logistics Management company with its Head Office in Dallas, Texas.
