Airlines Operating/Not Operating at DEN

Denver's strategic location near the geographic center of the U.S. makes DEN a convenient transcontinental connecting point. In addition, Denver's relatively isolated location also means that travelers from neighboring states use Denver International as their origin airport, widening Denver's catchment area.

Room to Grow
Denver International Airport is one of the few major U.S. airports with room to expand its current facilities to accommodate future growth. Encompassing 53 square miles (137.8 square kilometers) of land, DEN is twice the size of Manhattan Island, and is larger than the city boundaries of Boston, Miami or San Francisco.  DEN is the largest airport site in North America and the second largest in the world.

The efficient layout of six non-intersecting runways allows for multiple simultaneous aircraft movements. DEN has capacity for six additional runways, another terminal and two additional concourses.  Denver’s Runway 16R/34L, which runs north south and is 16,000 feet long (4,800 meters), is the longest commercial runway in the United States.

Opening Times
Denver does not have any slot restrictions or curfews and is open 24 hours per day.  The Federal Inspection Service (FIS) facility is open between 10 a.m. and 8 p.m. Mountain Time daily.
