DFW AIRPORT, TEXAS – March 8,2016 – Dallas Fort Worth International (DFW) Airport has taken another step towards elevating the customer experience, becoming the first airport in the world to introduce an app for Apple TV customers.
DFW customers are now able to access the latest travel information via the Apple TV app and will have access to the latest travel information while packing and preparing for departure.
“The Apple TV app allows us to provide customers information they want in real-time,” said Ken Buchanan, DFW’s Executive Vice President of Revenue Management. “This app and the DFW mobile app demonstrate our commitment to personalizing the travel experience for our customers.”
