DENVER – March 28, 2017 – Denver International Airport (DEN) had its busiest January in Denver history with 4.4 million passengers passing through DEN. This was an increase from January 2016 of 145,430 passengers.

A total of 4,434,862 passengers passed through the airport in January, more than 3 percent higher than during the same time in 2016.

“Denver International Airport ended 2016 with a record 58.3 million passengers, so we are excited to see that growth continue into January,” airport CEO Kim Day said. “These numbers were bolstered in part by a 2 percent increase in international passenger traffic and continued increases in overall capacity by United, Southwest and Frontier, which makes for a strong start to 2017.”
