Detroit Metropolitan Wayne County Airport

Where is Detroit Metropolitan Wayne County Airport?  


Motor City: the first automotive assembly line began here. Motor Town: the sweet sound of Motown was born here. City of Champions: for the sports superstars. Rock City: as in the Kiss hit, Detroit Rock City. All nicknames for the American city of Detroit. And all clues to Detroit's past and its contributions to the world.


Today, Detroit is a global centre in the automotive world, with General Motors, Ford, and Chrysler all headquartered here. All have at least some research, design, engineering and manufacturing facilities in the area. The import brands are here too: Toyota, Nissan, Hyundai, and more. Yet, with world class theatre and museums, beautifully restored historic buildings, there is far more to Detroit than cars.


Detroit Metropolitan Wayne County International Airport (IATA: DTW, ICAO: KDTW), usually called Detroit Metro Airport, Metro Airport locally, or simply DTW, is located in Romulus, a suburb of Detroit, in the state of Michigan, United States. Detroit Metro Airport is huge (with 6 runways, 2 terminals and 145 gates), and has its own Westin Hotel and conference centre.


Airlines serving Detroit Metro Airport include Air Canada, Air France, China Eastern Continental, Delta, KLM Royal Dutch, Lufthansa, Royal Jordanian, Spirit, United and US Airways. DTW is Delta's 2nd busiest hub, and is Spirit's 2nd largest base.


International destinations served include Amsterdam, Buenos Aires, Guanajuato, London, Mexico City, Montreal, Paris, San Paulo, Santiago and Toronto. Within the USA, flights operate to every major city and many smaller cities and towns. 


In 2011, Detroit Metropolitan Wayne County Airport served 32,406,159 passengers, making it the 17th busiest airport in the United States, and the 42nd busiest in the world. DFW is Michigan's busiest airport, followed by MBS International Airport (MBS) and  Flint Bishop International Airport (FNT).


Your best DFW transfer options are the airport shuttle or the Smart Bus. Taxis are expensive, but a limo is only about 10 bucks more. Consider renting a car if you will be staying awhile. Details are included in this guide.


Interesting fact: the McNamara Terminal Concourse A is one of the world's longest airport terminal buildings at 1.6 kilometres (1 mile).
