DFW International Airport Launches New Website

DFW International Airport and the North Texas Commission have launched an
informational Web site
to educate and inform
the public on issues relating to the Wright Amendment and the North Texas

“There are a number of people and organizations saying a lot of different
things on the subject of the Wright Amendment. We believe it is important
for everyone to have accurate, factual information regarding this issue,”
said Ken Capps, vice president of public affairs at DFW International
Airport. “The issue has far reaching impact on our economy, our region and
hundreds of thousands of jobs.”

The site includes key economic facts and historical information for use by
the traveling public, news media and other interested parties. It is easy
to navigate with substantive links so users can obtain a full
appreciation of why keeping this legislation in place is important and
why keeping the economic engine of North Texas strong is vital to the
continued growth and success of Dallas, Fort Worth and surrounding cities
and counties.

The site’s front page features letters from North Texas Commission
President and CEO Dan Petty and DFW International Airport CEO Jeff Fegan.
The site also highlights the Airport’s contributions to the North Texas
economy, particularly in the area of minority/women-owned businesses. A
“Myth v. Fact” section is aimed at clearing up misinformation on the
topic, and a “sign-up” feature will e-mail recipients the latest
information regarding the issue.

The North Texas Commission is a regional non-profit consortium of
businesses, cities, counties, chambers of commerce, economic development
entities and higher education institutions in the North Texas Region. The
Commission is the one and only public-private regional organization
committed to enhancing the overall economic vitality and quality of life
of North Texas. For more information: .
