Gate Areas

DEN currently has 148 narrow-body contact gates with 21 ground load positions. Passengers access the gates via the A, B and C concourses. To reach the A Gates, passengers can choose to walk over a pedestrian bridge or take the passenger train. Access to B and C Gates is limited to the passenger train. 

  • A Gates: 3,760 feet long
  • B Gates: 4,360 feet long
  • C Gates: 3,181feet long

DEN completed the Gate Expansion Program with the opening of A-West and B-East areas on Nov. 4, 2022. The program added 39 new gates, increasing DEN’s gate capacity by 30 percent. The program allows airlines an opportunity to grow and to accommodate new airlines, including international carriers.

  • Nearly 50,000 square feet of concessions space was added as part of the project.
  • The project added passenger amenities to all three concourses, including an opportunity for passengers to step outside for a breath of fresh air at DEN’s post-security outdoor areas. These new “DEN Decks” provide views of the mountains or prairies and feature pet relief areas, outdoor seating and fire pits. 
  • Gate waiting areas at all new gates include a variety of seating options, from lounges to workspaces to bar stools, all with power outlets for charging.
  • Restrooms in the new areas include upgraded features, family restrooms, and nursing rooms to provide additional resources and a more comfortable experience for passengers.
