DFW Airport is one of the busiest in the US, in fact, in 2020 it was 2nd by passenger count only to Atlanta, having seen more robust flight numbers than many other airports during the Covid pandemic.
For those who are driving to the airport it is advisable to seek parking at offsite operators like Park 'N Fly as on-airport lot closures and demand means that at times there is no pre-paid parking available.
To find out how busy DFW is right now check the estimated security times above.
For such a large airport it's no surprise that DFW TSA wait times can sometimes be lengthy, especially during holidays and when weather causes flight disruptions. However, Dallas Ft Worth Airport scores much better than most large US Airports and it does have various things in place to make passage through the airport smooth.
Unusually there are multiple security checkpoints per terminal, which helps to decrease the overall line waits. A popular feature, added a few years ago is overhead signage, which details the expected DFW wait times per checkpoint.
Overall you should plan on getting to DFW 2 hours before your flight for a domestic trip or 3 hours for an international flight. Please though consider the information above and in addition we'd suggest checking your flight status before leaving home. You can do so here.
