The new Orange Line connection from downtown of Dallas to Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport began running today. "This is a momentous day for our customers and for DFW Airport, because passenger rail is a critical component to DFW's status as a top-tier international gateway," Sean Donohue, CEO of DFW Airport, said in a statement. "With the DART Orange Line connecting DFW to downtown Dallas, DFW is now on a par with global hub airports that have integrated rail, which is a major selling point for customers and conventions." The five-mile segment links to DART's Belt Line Station with continuing service to other regional destinations including Irving-Las Colinas, Dallas Market Center and downtown Dallas.
