Premium tea retailer and fine dining steakhouse lead a wave of new concessions
outlets; more to debut with opening of Terminal A Phase 1 renovation early
next year

DFW AIRPORT, Texas, Dec. 20, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Dallas/Fort Worth
(DFW) International Airport has opened two new concessions outlets: Teavana
and III Forks Steakhouse, each of which represent the first ever location for
their respective brands at an airport. Teavana, the world's leading specialty
tea and tea accessory retailer, is located near Terminal A, Gate A16, while
III Forks, a French Texas steak and seafood restaurant that brings a new fine
dining experience to DFW, can be found near Gate D27 in Terminal D.

The new arrivals to DFW concessions represent the first wave of many
high-profile brand names that will debut in the coming weeks, several in
conjunction with the opening of the first phase of Terminal A renovations
scheduled for early February.

"We are excited that Teavana chose DFW as its first venue for serving the
flying public. Teavana brings a new element to DFW with its selection of
high-quality teas, tea merchandise and tea sampling," said Jeff Fegan, CEO of
DFW International Airport. "Our customers have told us they want creative and
healthy options, and Teavana certainly fits that bill with its high quality
loose leaf teas and tea accessories."

The debut of III Forks (pronounced "three forks") delivers another world-class
dining experience for DFW travelers in Terminal D, featuring some of the
nation's best prime steaks and signature seafood together with an intimate
dining experience and an expansive view of the terminal from the mezzanine
level of the north concessions village.

"With III Forks, passengers at DFW can experience a taste of local flavor in
this iconic steakhouse," said Fegan. "Bringing fine cuisine is one more way we
can enhance the airport experience for DFW passengers. The tremendous
reputation of III Forks also helps DFW maintain its status as one of the best
and most customer-focused airports in the world."

Also debuting this week is a newly relocated Cantina Laredo restaurant,
featuring authentic gourmet Mexican food across from Gate D24 in Terminal D.
In addition, two new retail shops opened recently in Terminal D. Sunglass Icon
near Gate D28 offers passengers a wide selection of high-quality, brand-named
eyewear from designers such as Prada and Coach. Dallas Cowboys For Her has
also arrived near Gate D10 and features a full line of licensed apparel and
accessories by Dallas Cowboys and PINK for female fans.

Next week, Qdoba Mexican Grill, popular for handmade "fresh Mexican" fare,
will make its debut followed soon after by The Salt Lick Bar-B-Que, featuring
its widely acclaimed Texas barbecue. These locations at Gate A16 are among the
first offerings in the new village-like space in Terminal A.
