Dallas and Fort Worth had their own Airports, namely Dallas Love and Fort Worth Meachem field. After numerous hurdles, the cities of Dallas and Fortworth with the help of the FAA received the funding and agreed to construct an airport that served both the cities of Dallas and Fort Worth. Wright amendment was signed into accord in 1979 and all direct flights with any airline operating from Dallas Love field were prohibited to operate out of Texas unless they stopped in a neighboring state. This measure was to protect Dallas Fortworth airport. The Wright amendment was fully repealed in 2014.
