199 BUSINESS VIEW MAGAZINE JANUARY 2021 DALLAS LOVE FIELD AIRPORT (DAL) So much to look forward to D allas Love Field (DAL) is leading the evolution of the airport experience, serving nearly 17 million passengers in 2019 – the most in its history. Located six miles northwest of downtown, Dallas Love Field is a city-owned public airport and was actually the main Dallas airport until 1974, when Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport (DFW) opened. “Prior to the pandemic Dallas Love Field was the 31st busiest airport in the country,” reports Mark Duebner, Director of Aviation for the City of Dallas. “We handled more than 16,000,000 passengers. All this with a relatively small land size, only 1300 acres with two runways and 20 gates. So, I guess you could say we’re a very busy medium hub airport.”
