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).

Denver International Airport and Roswell International Air Center Become Supernatural Sister Airports

Home

DENVER – April 26, 2019 – Today, Denver International Airport (DEN) and Roswell International Air Center officially signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) becoming sister airports, a formal process to share industry best practices. In addition to working together to promote business, commerce, trade and tourism, the new sister airports also plan to share their (extraterrestrial-combat) plans, including air service growth and development.

“DEN is known for our world-class airport and our wild conspiracies,” said DEN CEO Kim Day. “We are looking forward to exchanging ideas and plans with Roswell, a city very familiar with the unfamiliar.”

Since DEN opened in 1995, there have been endless rumors and theories. People have said there are underground tunnels that lead to secret meeting facilities for the world’s elite. Some believe DEN is connected to the new world order and the Freemasons. Some even say that DEN is home to a colony of lizard people. DEN has chosen to lean into the theories and take them head on.

Roswell, N.M., has also had several rumors take flight, including extraterrestrial visits, UFO sightings and government coverups. The city has embraced the rumors and is a top travel destination for alien enthusiasts and conspiracy theorists.

“It’s a great day when two airports as universally important as Denver International Airport and Roswell International Air Center can partner together in this manner,” said Roswell International Air Center Director Scott Stark. “I would say the sky is the limit. But, is it really?”

Roswell International Air Center Manager/Deputy Director Mark Bleth said he is “so proud to have signed the sister airport agreement with Denver International Airport. This strategic relationship will bring benefit to the citizens of Roswell through added tourism and potential new air service to Denver.”

DEN and Roswell are connected through an official sister airport MOU as well as their sibling mustang sculptures, DEN Mustang and Roswell Mustang. Both Mustangs were created by the same artist and were separated at birth. Many believe they can communicate across states with their fiery red eyes.

Both airports are excited to begin their supernatural sisterhood. They are committed to working collaboratively to promote greater ties between Denver and Roswell, as well as enhance communications between the airports and cosmic visitors.
