Smart Win­dows to Trans­form Cus­tomer Expe­ri­ence MILPITAS, Calif.– June 13, 2018 –

View®, the leader in dynamic glass, today announced it was awarded a con­tract by Dal­las Fort Worth Inter­na­tional Air­port (DFW) to install up to 500,000 square feet of smart win­dows in DFW’s pas­sen­ger ter­mi­nals. DFW joins a large and grow­ing list of lead­ing air­ports rapidly adopt­ing dynamic glass and set­ting a new stan­dard in delight­ful pas­sen­ger envi­ron­ments. “Deliv­er­ing a world-​​class cus­tomer expe­ri­ence is the over­ar­ch­ing goal of DFW’s efforts to trans­form travel,” said Sean Dono­hue, CEO of DFW Air­port. “After test­ing Dynamic Glass in our ter­mi­nals, we were thrilled to see the pos­i­tive effects on the cus­tomer expe­ri­ence and look for­ward to installing the glass in loca­tions that will have the great­est impact on our cus­tomers and our employ­ees.” A recent study at DFW’s Gate A28 and a nearby restau­rant showed that View Dynamic Glass sig­nif­i­cantly improved pas­sen­ger com­fort over con­ven­tional glass, result­ing in an 83 per­cent increase in pas­sen­ger dwell time at pre­ferred gate seat­ing and a 102 per­cent increase in con­ces­sion sales. View Dynamic Glass also demon­strated the abil­ity to reduce HVAC and light­ing energy usage by up to 15 per­cent in ter­mi­nals dur­ing peak peri­ods, sig­nif­i­cantly reduc­ing car­bon emis­sions. “We are excited DFW has cho­sen to out­fit the entire air­port with View Dynamic Glass after it proved to deliver on all of their strate­gic pri­or­i­ties.” said Dr. Rao Mulpuri, CEO of View, Inc. “Our relent­less focus on cre­at­ing delight­ful human envi­ron­ments is yield­ing incred­i­ble results across the avi­a­tion indus­try. We are look­ing for­ward to work­ing with DFW to cre­ate first-​​class pas­sen­ger expe­ri­ences.” DFW Air­port is the world’s fourth busiest airport,serving more than 67 mil­lion pas­sen­gers trav­el­ing to 230 domes­tic and inter­na­tional des­ti­na­tions. As the largest carbon-​​neutral air­port in the world and the first in North Amer­ica, DFW’s adop­tion of dynamic glass builds upon its lead­er­ship posi­tion of embrac­ing lead­ing tech­nolo­gies to bet­ter serve its pas­sen­gers, busi­ness part­ners, and the envi­ron­ment. View Dynamic Glass has been installed at sev­eral air­ports to date, includ­ing Boston Logan Inter­na­tional Air­port (BOS), Charlotte-​​Douglas Inter­na­tional Air­port (CLT), San Fran­cisco Inter­na­tional Air­port (SFO), and Seattle-​​Tacoma Inter­na­tional Air­port (SEA).
