    Officials of the Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport and Incheon International Airport in Seoul, South Korea, today signed an airport partnership agreement that will include the mutual pursuit of new air service and the sharing of best practices and information.

    “Incheon is unquestionably a global leader, setting a new standard for airports around the world,” said Jeff Fegan, chief executive of the D/FW Airport.

    “Incheon offers travelers some very unique experiences,” he said. “It’s a mode from which DFW hopes to benchmark against and learn from.”

    C W Lee, CEO of Incheon International Airport Corp., agreed, saying the partnership will help “both airports to grow more and more.”

    The 11-year-old Incheon Airport saw 35 million passengers and 2.5 million tons of cargo last year. The 38-year-old DFW Airport managed 57.8 million passengers and 652,655 tons of cargo in 2011.
    The DFW Airport is the world’s eighth busiest airport and the 4th busiest airport in North America, with 57,806,152 passengers in 2011, according to Airports Council International. It has ranked among the top five in service 1uality for five straight years.
