Dallas Fort Worth International Airport (DFW) has approved a 10-year lease agreement with PS VIP Services to open a private luxury terminal for wealthy travelers, celebrities, and corporate executives. The 12,200-square-foot facility will feature chef-prepared meals, chauffeur service, and day beds among other conveniences, and it will sit adjacent to DFW’s corporate aviation complex north of Terminal A.

The new facility will include the private suites in addition to a signature lounge concept offered by PS called “The Salon.” Travelers will have access to private security and customs screenings and get personally escorted to and from the jet bridge stairs of their plane in a BMW sedan. An all-access membership costs $4,850 annually, in addition to $3,450 for up to four people in the private suite and $695 per person for the lounge. Users without a membership pay $4,650 for access to the suite for up to four people and $995 per person for the lounge. Membership also includes complimentary valet parking and spa services. PS VIP Services opened its first private terminal at Los Angeles International Airport in 2017. A second location will open at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport later this year.

“DFW Airport is excited about this newest opportunity to transform travel for our customers as PS brings its unique services to our airport,” says Ken Buchanan, DFW Airport executive vice president of revenue management and customer experience, in a prepared statement. “DFW welcomes PS and the opportunity to elevate the customer experience with this unique new option for travelers. They can have a more personalized experience to and from their flights at DFW.”

In addition to the PS VIP luxury lounge, the DFW airport board approved a 10-year lease with JPMorgan Chase & Co. to bring the financial giant’s “Chase Sapphire Lounge by The Club” concept to Terminal D. Lounge operator Plaza Premium Group opened an independent lounge in Terminal E at DFW in 2020. Another lounge operated by the company on behalf of Capital One opened Terminal D in 2021.
