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.

Icelandair to Operate Nine Weekly Flights from Denver in Summer 2017


Icelandair becomes the first carrier in Denver aviation history to operate double daily transatlantic flights to the same destinations

DENVER – Oct. 11, 2016 – Icelandair announced flights between Denver and Reykjavik will increase from daily to nine weekly flights for summer 2017. For days with two flight operations, the departure and arrival times will be within 30 minutes.

Additional flights:
8th Weekly Flight: June 1 – Sept. 14
Arrive in Denver on Mondays
Depart from Denver on Tuesdays

9th Weekly Flight: June 12 – Sept. 4
Arrive in Denver on Thursdays
Depart from Denver on Fridays

Icelandair’s double daily flights on Tuesdays and Fridays will mark the first time in Denver aviation history that a carrier has operated more than one daily flight to the same transatlantic destination. Icelandair began service at Denver International Airport (DEN) in May 2012 with four weekly flights. The summer 2017 schedule represents a 120 percent increase over service levels in summer 2012.

“When Icelandair began service from Denver in 2012, we had great expectations for the Mile High City. Now, five years later, we see enough demand to increase flights to better serve our passengers. We’re pleased to announce that, starting in 2017, Icelandair will offer up to nine non-stop flights a week from Denver to Reykjavik. This increase will make getting to and from more than 25 destinations in Europe even more convenient and give travelers more options when traveling to Iceland and beyond,” said Birkir Holm Gudnasson, Icelandair, CEO.

Travel between Denver and Iceland has increased significantly since 2012. More than 60 passengers per day travel between the two cities, and Reykjavik now ranks as Denver’s eighth-largest market in Europe. Icelandair is also the leading carrier for travelers between Denver and Paris, and a number of Nordic destinations, including Copenhagen, Stockholm and Helsinki.

“Icelandair’s entry into Denver not only created a new market, but travel between Denver and points in Europe was also stimulated as a result of their service,” said DEN CEO Kim Day. “We are pleased that Icelandair will continue to add flights, providing more options than ever before for transatlantic travel from Denver.”
