<p>On his visit to Dallas on 22 November, 1963, President John F. Kennedy rode in a motorcade through Dealey Plaza on his way to the Dallas Trade Mart. In the presidential car with Kennedy were his wife Jacqueline, Texas Governor John Connally, and his wife Nellie. Hundreds of well-wishers were scattered throughout the Plaza. Nellie Connally's last words to Kennedy, 'Mr. President, you can't say Dallas doesn't love you!' reflected the sentiment of the crowd.</p>

Dallas Fort Worth International Airport

Where is Dallas Fort Worth Airport?  

The Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex, or simply The Metroplex, as the locals call it, is the cultural and economic hub of northern/central Texas. 

Dallas has a high concentration of corporate headquarters, one of the highest in the United States. Nicknamed the Telecom Corridor, or Silicon Prairie, the area is heavily populated with IT companies and projects. There is also a strong aviation base here, with American Airlines, Lockheed Martin and others based here. The Fort Worth area is the home of ranching and farming industries in the state. All this makes for a very busy airport!

DFW Dallas Fort Worth International Airport (IATA: DFW, ICAO: KDFW) is located in the DFW Metroplex, between the cities of Dallas and Fort Worth. Lying within the city limits of four suburban cities, DFW Airport is considered to be an "Airport City" with its own ZIP code, post office and public services.

With 57,744,554 passengers served in 2011, DFW Airport is the 4th busiest airport in the United States, and the 8th busiest airport in the world.  DFW Airport is the largest hub for American Airlines.
