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.

Denver International Airport Breaks Record for Busiest January

Home

DENVER — March 4, 2014 — Denver International Airport’s (DIA) passenger traffic in January 2014 was a record-breaking month with 4,056,858 passengers, a 0.8 percent increase over the airport’s travelers in January 2013. This is the second consecutive record-breaking month for DIA. The airport ended 2013 by setting a record for the busiest December in its 19-year history.

International passenger traffic continued its year-over-year growth due to service additions by United from DIA to Tokyo, Japan (NRT) and Fort McMurray, Canada (YMM), as well as strong passenger growth on Lufthansa’s nonstop to Frankfurt, Germany (FRA). Passengers traveling onboard international flights increased by more than 21 percent in January 2014 compared to January 2013.

“This January, Denver International Airport saw very strong origin and destination traffic from each of our major carriers: United, Southwest and Frontier, indicating that there were large numbers of people traveling to and from Denver,” said Denver’s Manager of Aviation, Kim Day. “When the airport sees record-breaking increases in passenger traffic, this translates to a positive economic outlook for the entire Rocky Mountain region and indicates that we are off to a strong and successful 2014.”

Additionally, mail, freight and express cargo operations saw a 9 percent decrease in January over the previous year. To date, 39,965,311 pounds of cargo have been handled at DIA in 2014, down from 44,010,519 pounds of cargo handled during the same time in 2013.
