A right inbound lane closure will be in effect from approximately 8 p.m. on May 28 to 4 a.m. on May 29.

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.

Denver International Airport Congratulates Frontier Airlines on 20 Years of Service


DENVER – July 3, 2014 – Denver International Airport (DIA) congratulates Frontier Airlines on 20 years of service in Denver. Frontier Airlines began service on July 5, 1994 from Stapleton International Airport in Denver to Bismarck, Fargo, Grand Forks and Minot, North Dakota.

Denver Mayor Michael Hancock also congratulates Frontier Airlines, “I am so proud Denver has an airline headquartered in our great City. Frontier Airlines has been an integral business contributing to our economy by providing jobs to more than 3,800 people and connecting passengers domestically and internationally to and from Denver. It’s hard to believe that 20 years have already gone by, and I look forward to many more successful years partnering with Colorado’s hometown carrier.”

Over the last 20 years, nearly 130 million passengers have travelled between Denver and destinations in the United States, Central America, the Caribbean and Mexico.

“I’d like to thank our many loyal passengers for flying Denver’s hometown airline these past 20 years,” said David Siegel, CEO of Frontier Airlines. “While today we are honoring our past, we are also celebrating our future. We are evolving as a business and we are proud that we are making travel more affordable and accessible than ever by offering some of the lowest fares ever seen in the Denver market. We appreciate the continuing support of Denver International Airport in ensuring our ability to better serve our shared community.”

Today, Frontier Airlines’ primary hub is at Denver International Airport, and the airline is Denver’s third largest carrier with 18 percent of the market share by passenger traffic with 110 daily departures.

Frontier Airlines is the only carrier to serve the Caribbean and Costa Rica from Denver.

“Denver International Airport congratulates Frontier Airlines, and thanks them for their commitment to the Denver market these past 20 years,” said Kim Day, Chief Executive Officer of Denver International Airport. “As an ultra-low cost carrier, they are now broadening the options for Denver passengers. We wish them many more years of success at DIA!”
