Information on Denver International Airport

Denver International Airport

Denver International airport, often called DIA, is, by land size at 53 square miles, the largest international airport in the United States, and the third largest international airport in the world after King Fahd International airport and Montreal-Mirabel International airport.

In 2009, Denver International airport was the tenth-busiest airport in the world by passenger traffic with 50,167,485 passengers. It was also the fourth-busiest airport in the world by aircraft movements with 606,006 movements.

Denver International airport is the main hub for low-cost carrier Frontier Airlines and commuter carrier Great Lakes Airlines. It is also the second-largest hub for United Airlines (after Chicago's O'Hare International airport), as well as a focus city for Southwest Airlines. Since commencing service to Denver in January 2006, Southwest has added over 40 destinations, making Denver its fastest-growing market.

Denver has traditionally been home to one of the busier airports in the nation because of its location. Many airlines including United Airlines, Continental Airlines, Western Airlines, TWA, the old Frontier Airlines and People Express were hubbed in Denver and there was also a significant Southwest Airlines operation at the old Stapleton International airport. At times, Denver was a hub for three or four airlines. Gate space was severely limited at Stapleton, and the runways at the old Stapleton were unable to deal efficiently with Denver's weather and wind patterns, causing nationwide travel disruption. These problems were the main justification for the new airport. The project began with Perez Architects and was completed by Fentress Bradburn Architects of Denver. The signature DIA profile, suggestive of the snow capped Rocky Mountains, was first hand sketched by Design Director Curtis W. Fentress. Seized upon by then Mayor, Federico Pena, as the iconic form he was looking for -- "similar to the Sydney Opera house" -- DIA's design as well as its user-optimized curbside to airside navigation has won DIA global acclaim and propelled its designer, Fentress, to one of the foremost airport designers in the world. Fentress Architects is currently at work on the modernization of LAX. Once fully built out, DIA should be able to handle 110 million passengers per year, up from 32 million at its opening.
