DALLAS — Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport provides a $31.6 billion economic impact to the metropolitan area it serves, according to the University of North Texas Center of Economic Development and Research.

The figure is about double previous estimates because it includes $16 billion from the airport's air cargo activities that had not been counted in the past, according to research introduced at an event called Aerotropolis Americas held at DFW's Hyatt Regency Hotel.
