Two construction projects will impact traffic to and from Denver International Airport (DEN) this week.

Inbound Peña Blvd. lanes (heading to DEN) between Tower Rd. & the RTD bridge will be restored to their pre-existing, permanent alignment. A right inbound lane closure will be in effect from approximately 8 p.m. on May 28 to 4 a.m. on May 29. Additionally, crews will replace a damaged overhead electronic message board sign on May 28 and 29 on outbound Peña Blvd. (leaving DEN). Work is expected to start around 10 p.m. on May 28 and finish around 4 a.m. on May 29, and again around 10 p.m. on May 29 to 4 a.m. on May 30. At approximately 1 a.m., between Tower Road and E 56th Avenue, a slow rolling closure of Peña Boulevard traffic will be implemented for less than 10 minutes. Speeds will be significantly reduced. Crews will be transporting and setting bridge girders on E-470 over outbound Peña Blvd. (leaving DEN) between 11 p.m. on May 30 until 6 a.m. on May 31. Between Jackson Gap Street and E-470, approximately once every hour, slow, rolling closures of Peña will be implemented for approximately seven minutes.

Cayman Airways Returns to Denver International Airport


Nonstop flights to Grand Cayman will operate once per week

DENVER – Feb. 25, 2022 – Tomorrow Denver International Airport (DEN) will celebrate the return of Cayman Airways, the national flag carrier of the Cayman Islands. Beginning Feb. 26, the carrier will once again connect Denver nonstop with Grand Cayman (GCM) on Saturdays.

“Cayman Airways is a valued airline partner and the return of Denver service is welcome news,” said DEN CEO Phil Washington. “Nonstop flights to Grand Cayman will once again provide a unique option for Denver travelers to easily access this popular Caribbean destination.”

Cayman Airways first inaugurated service between Denver and Grand Cayman in March 2019. Flights last operated on March 21, 2020 and had remained suspended due to travel restrictions associated with the COVID-19 pandemic.

“Our nonstop service between Grand Cayman and Denver reduces the travel time to Cayman from typically between nine and eleven hours using multiple flights, to less than five hours aboard a nonstop flight operated by our brand-new state-of-the-art Boeing 737-8 aircraft, with industry-leading comfort and legroom in both our Business and Economy cabins,” said Cayman Airways’ Executive Vice President of Finance and Commercial Affairs Paul Tibbetts. “Denver is the longest scheduled commercial flight the airline has ever operated, thanks in part to the tremendous flight range and fuel efficiency of the new 737-8 aircraft. The Cayman Airways Denver route ensures that travel between the Denver area and the Cayman Islands is fast and hassle free, and we look forward to once again welcoming new and returning visitors from the Mile High City to the Cayman Islands.”

In 2019 more than 200 people per week traveled from Denver to Grand Cayman. The new service offered by Cayman Airways resulted in an increase in demand for travel from Denver to Grand Cayman by 50%.

“Tourism is highly dependent on airlift and the resumption of the Cayman Airways service to Denver, Colorado, is integral to the recovery of our tourism industry,” said Hon. Kenneth Bryan, the Minister for Tourism and Transport for the Cayman Islands. “The ability to resume established routes like Denver emphasizes the importance of our national airline and highlights the strategic role it plays in making it easy for tourists to visit the Cayman Islands from key gateways across the U.S.”

Cayman Airways is the only Caribbean-based airline to operate in Denver.
