Media Credentials

At DFW Airport, only journalists with current media credentials will be permitted access to an area reserved for the media. You must wear your media credentials at all times when covering a story at DFW. You may also be asked to provide a government-issued photo identification and a business card for your media organization. 

Freelance writers need to offer proof (such as a letter from the editor on publication letterhead) of their assignment before they will be credentialed.

Photographs and video recordings may be obtained from any area to which credentialed media have been permitted access. The Transportation Security Administration (TSA, has implemented policies regarding photographing/videotaping security procedures. The news media is not allowed to photograph or videotape display screens inside security checkpoints, as well as security systems or security personnel where such activity interferes with screening personnel in performance of their duties. 

DFW Airport’s Department of Public Safety and/or DFW Communications & Marketing reserves the right to direct personnel to identify media representatives assigned to cover emergencies at DFW using temporary news media credentials.
