DENVER – Sept. 12, 2017 – Denver International Airport (DEN) not only had its busiest July in the airport’s history, but also the airport’s busiest month in Denver aviation history. The airport served more than 5.8 million passengers, marking the 23rd-consecutive month of record-setting passenger traffic.

“Denver International Airport continued to experience record passenger numbers as part of the busy summer travel season,” airport CEO Kim Day said. “While Southwest had a notable 10 percent increase in passengers, every major airline contributed to the overall passenger increase, including our international carriers who helped us reach a 10 percent increase in international passengers over July 2016.”
