Dallas / Fort Worth (DFW) Airport

The Dallas-Fort Worth (DFW) International Airport is one of the largest airports in the world and operates 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days per year. Buying a home or establishing a business in Coppell affords not only the luxury of having easy access to the airport, but also results in periodic airplane traffic and noise. The City and airport work in partnership regarding zoning compatibility, noise monitoring, public education, and other areas where the airport impacts the community and those who live and work here.

Capital Improvement Projects

Our community will sometimes be impacted by changes in runway schedules as DFW Airport undergoes various capital improvement projects to keep the infrastructure maintained, as well as due to weather conditions. The DFW Noise Compatibility Office is the primary liaison to demonstrate noise and land use compliance deliverables, educate, research, assist and advise on aircraft noise, flight patterns, airspace and related actions: 

  • Airlines
  • Board staff
  • FAA
  • Municipalities
  • NASA
  • Neighboring communities
  • Residents
  • Universities

West Side of Coppell

The west side of Coppell was zoned light industrial/commercial use for a reason - DFW Airport flight paths fly directly over this portion of Coppell. Some neighborhoods close to this side of town might also be impacted by aircraft noise. Visit the DFW Airport noise overlay map to examine how aircraft operations might affect your home or business.
