DFW International Airport Severe Weather Statement
Wednesday, June 6, 6:00 PM

Due to a series of thunderstorms in the Dallas/Fort Worth area, DFW International Airport is currently tracking 65 diverted flights and has implemented its Irregular Operations Concessions Plan (IROPS) in all five terminals. During IROPS restaurants will be staying open to accommodate passengers whose flights are affected due to this series of storms.

This evening, DFW Customer Service personnel are also providing passengers with varying types of assistance including hotel/motel information and ground transportation needs. The Airport plans to distribute cots, blankets, pillows and toiletry kits to passengers who request them. Additionally, DFW has many reclining gate seats and “Comfort Zone” seating areas permanently deployed in the terminals to make longer stays more comfortable should the need arise.

Thunderstorms arrived at DFW about 4:00 PM Wednesday afternoon, and the series of storms is expected throughout the evening into Thursday. DFW advises all passengers to check their flight information at www.dfwairport.com prior to coming to the Airport.

We counted close to 100 departures cancelled from mid-afternoon into late evening Wednesday, plus some really, really long delays, such as an American Airlines flight to Tampa scheduled to arrive more than three hours late and an AA flight to Norfolk, Va., that was projected to arrive more than four hours late.

At Dallas Love Field, there were similarly long delays on some flights, but no cancellations (as of 6:40 p.m.).
