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.
