Dallas-Fort Worth (DFW) International Airport covers more than 26.9 miles of land and is the fourth busiest airport in the world, with roughly 664,000 flights annually. The airport’s expansive geography combined with the large number of daily passengers makes efficient signage of the utmost importance. To further enhance the customer experience, DFW is evaluating ways to improve their current wayfinding signage and streamline a passenger’s journey through the airport terminals and when using Skylink. After developing wayfinding and signage standards for DFW’s Signage Master Plan, Lochner has been reselected for a second master on-call contract, making Lochner responsible for providing signage design, planning, and engineering services in the implementation of these standards.

Lochner’s scope of work includes both secure and non-secure areas of existing terminals, associated parking structures, surface parking spaces, and upper and lower terminal curb fronts serving commercial and private vehicles. Lochner is providing on-site staff to work alongside DFW staff to deliver outstanding client service and minimize turn-around time for assignments.
