Dallas CBD Vertiport (IATA: JDB, FAA LID: 49T) is a city-owned public heliport/vertiport in the city of Dallas, Dallas County, Texas, United States.[2][3] The facility is located at the south end of the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center in the Dallas Central Business District, and is claimed to be the world's largest elevated heliport/vertiport.[1]

Most U.S. airports use the same three-letter location identifier for the FAA and IATA, but Dallas CBD Vertiport is assigned 49T by the FAA and JDB by the IATA.[4]
