"Denver International Airport" Airport Tip by traveldave

Airport, Colorado: 1 reviews and 1 photos


Recently opened in 1995, Denver International Airport (DEN) is the largest airport in the world. At 53 square miles (137 square kilometers), the airport is twice the size of Manhattan, and is larger than the cities of Boston, Miami, and San Francisco. The city planners decided to place the new airport about 23 miles (37 kilometers) to the northeast of Denver on the open plains in anticipation of future growth and expansion. Denver International Airport is the tenth-busiest airport in the world, primarily because it is one of the three hubs of United Airlines. Until recently, the airport was only served by domestic airlines. However, due to the increasing importance of Denver as a center for international business, there are now nonstop flights to London, Frankfurt, Reykjavik, Tokyo, Toronto, Vancouver, Calgary, Winnipeg, Mexico City and several other destinations in Mexico, Costa Rica, and the Caribbean.

Airlines serving Denver International Airport: AeroMexico, Air Canada, Alaska Airlines, Allegiant Air, American Airlines, British Airways, Delta Air Lines, Frontier Airlines, Great Lakes Airlines, Icelandair, jetBlue Airways, Lufthansa German Airlines, Midwest Airlines, Southwest Airlines, Spirit Airlines, United Airlines, United Express, Virgin America, and Volaris.
