DENVER – Oct. 25, 2016 – Denver International Airport (DEN) announced today that it received a perfect score on its recent annual inspection by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA).

The annual “Part 139” inspection is conducted by the FAA and reviews airport operations as part of the annual airport certification process. Airport Operating Certificates are issued by the FAA and serve to ensure safety in air transportation by requiring airports to meet certain operational and safety standards and provide things such as firefighting and rescue equipment. Federal inspectors found no discrepancies between DEN operations and FAA operating standards.

“Safety is the No. 1 priority at Denver International Airport, so we are proud to receive a perfect score by the FAA in this year’s annual inspection of our facility and operations,” airport CEO Kim Day said. “This airport is among the busiest in the world, with more than 540,000 aircraft operations in 2015. Everyone in our organization, from our 1,200 airport employees to our federal and local partners, are extremely dedicated to serving the traveling public and maintaining the highest standards of safety.”

The FAA’s inspection includes the following areas of DEN’s operations:

  • Movement area, including runways, taxiways, pavement, markings, lighting, signs, safety areas and more
