Update from DEN: Monday morning passengers at DEN experienced significant lines across all security screening checkpoints resulting in lengthy wait times to get through security.

We’ve been in contact with local and national TSA leadership to understand what resources and staffing they had in place this morning, how the lanes were being operated, what advance planning took place, traffic projections, equipment issues and more. At the same time, we are reviewing our own operation regarding how we manage the lines outside the checkpoint. TSA and DEN continue to work together in partnership to address the challenges we are having so that we can best accommodate the numbers of passengers traveling through DEN, particularly at peak times. We are encouraged by the performance of the equipment in the new West Security Checkpoint and the vast majority of times, wait times are below 10 minutes. However, we know there was a problem during peak time on the morning of Feb. 26 and we are going to do everything we can possibly do, working with TSA and our airlines, to fix this situation. Our passengers deserve an amazing, efficient and positive travel experience and we are committed to providing just that.

About Facing the Wind

“Facing the Wind’ Showcased Wild Mustangs and Burros at Denver International Airport
Facing the Wind, showcased a series of large-scale color images of America’s wild horses and burros from 18 different photographers.
According to Michael Golembeski, director and founder of the WindDancer Foundation, Facing the Wind provided travelers with an opportunity to experience the wild horses that live on our public lands in 10 western states. Along with the Native Americans and the bison, the wild horse remains one of the great symbols of the American West. Always colorful characters in the wild and the object of many tales, they hold an invaluable place in the unfolding of America’s history. The WindDancer Foundation coordinated with 18 artists to create the exhibition: Katie Simpson, Yva Momatiuk and John Eastcott, John Wagner, Pat Brennan, Gail deMonet, Bristol MacDonald, Mark Terrell, Lynne Pomeranz, Tony Stromberg, Lee Mitchelson, Tamara Rymer, Barbara and Marty Wheeler, Kimerlee Curyl, Lisa Dearing, Tamara Gooch and Joe Tosh.
