Passengers and Freight Traffic, DFW, 1982-2014
In the 1980s and 1990s traffic handled by DFW grew rapidly, but peaked in 2000 just above 60 million passengers and 950,000 tons. Over the next 15 years little change took place for passenger traffic, while air cargo steadily declined. The stagnation of air cargo is in part attributed to the erosion of the Texan IT sector as well as the NAFTA trade being by-passed by economic growth in Asia. Most of the growth in air cargo flows took place across the Pacific, a market which is not much serviced by DFW.
