Two construction projects will impact traffic to and from Denver International Airport (DEN) this week.

Inbound Peña Blvd. lanes (heading to DEN) between Tower Rd. & the RTD bridge will be restored to their pre-existing, permanent alignment. 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. 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. Crews will be transporting and setting bridge girders on E-470 over outbound Peña Blvd. (leaving DEN) between 11 p.m. on May 30 until 6 a.m. on May 31. Between Jackson Gap Street and E-470, approximately once every hour, slow, rolling closures of Peña will be implemented for approximately seven minutes. Speeds will be significantly reduced during this time.

Denver International Airport Recognizes 20 Years of Lufthansa Service

Home

The carrier inaugurated flights to Frankfurt, Germany on March 25, 2001

DENVER – March 25, 2021 – Denver International Airport (DEN) and Lufthansa German Airlines have worked together for two decades, offering the surrounding community nonstop service to Germany. The carrier first inaugurated flights between Denver and Frankfurt, Germany on March 25, 2001, and service to Munich launched in May 2016.

“We are pleased to mark this milestone and express our appreciation to Lufthansa for their significant investment in Denver over the past 20 years,” said DEN CEO Kim Day. “Despite the pandemic, Lufthansa has remained committed to Denver and we look to the future when our connectivity on Lufthansa to both Frankfurt and Munich is fully restored.”

Over the past 20 years, Lufthansa has served more than 4.5 million passengers at DEN and operated more than 17,000 flights. In 2001, Lufthansa became the first carrier to provide nonstop flights between Denver and Germany, and Lufthansa was also the first airline to reconnect Denver nonstop with Europe during the COVID-19 pandemic. Following a suspension of flights in mid-March 2020, Lufthansa resumed service to Denver on Oct. 25 and today is providing three weekly flights to Frankfurt. Schedules for the peak summer season are projected to ramp up as borders are reopened and pent-up travel demand continues to increase.

“Denver International Airport has been an important partner for Lufthansa and the entire Lufthansa Group in what has become a key regional market for the company, not only as a gateway to Colorado, but an integral link in the group’s intercontinental network. We are proud to link Denver to hundreds of cities around the world and look forward to return to normal operations, once demand bounces back,” said Larry Ryan, Senior Director of Sales for the Lufthansa Group airlines in the USA.
