Denver International Airport’s (DEN) trains to the concourses will be shut down overnight for six days in February for scheduled testing of the train’s electrical power system. The scheduled testing will help DEN airport operations evaluate the AGTS (Automated Guideway Transit System) power distribution system. Employees and passengers will need use Bridge Security, which will be the 24-hour checkpoint starting at 8 p.m. Starting at 9:15 p.m., those who need to reach the B and C concourses will be guided via signage and/or airport personnel to a bus that will take them to the concourses. These changes will be in effect from 9:15 p.m. Feb. 20, to 3 a.m., Feb. 21. It is recommended that passengers who need to get to the B and C Concourses during these hours should arrive to security at least 30 minutes earlier than they would have otherwise to ensure they have enough time to move through the airport.Follow DEN on Twitter Follow DEN on Instagram

DENVER – Sept. 1, 2023 – In a move to foster sustainability within the aviation industry, Denver International Airport (DEN) is helping neighboring local airports in Colorado become more efficient by selling multiple pieces of fleet equipment at the Colorado Aeronautics Surplus Sale. By offering advanced equipment to local airports, DEN aims to lead a wider adoption of sustainable practices across the region, reducing the collective carbon footprint and promoting a more environmentally responsible approach to aviation operations.
“For over ten years, DEN’s fleet team have participated in the Colorado Aeronautics Surplus Sale,” DEN CEO Phil Washington said. “This partnership ensures our equipment and technologies can benefit Colorado’s local airports.”
Surrounding Colorado airports are able to buy the equipment, and the State picks up a large percentage of the cost for them, providing airports in our state access to budget-friendly equipment they otherwise would not have funding for.
DEN’s Fleet Management Section maintains more than 1,300 different vehicles and equipment ranging from large snow removal vehicles, Aircraft Rescue and Firefighting (ARFF) vehicles, forklifts, cranes and light duty vehicles to smaller equipment such as concrete saws.
Recently, DEN’s fleet operations were recognized for its sustainable management as the No. 3 fleet in North America by the National Association of Fleet Administration (NAFA). The annual ranking recognizes peakperforming operations and honors enhanced practices positively impacting the environment and improvements within the fleet industry.
