DEN takes off

Let's Travel - - U.S.A. | DENVER AIRPORT -

When Den­ver In­ter­na­tional Air­port (DEN) opened on Fe­bru­ary 28th 1995, it brought a de­par­ture from the or­di­nary. From its spa­cious de­sign and dis­tinc­tive ar­chi­tec­ture, to its abil­ity to grow and adapt with tech­nol­ogy and travel habits, DEN in­flu­enced a global shift in air­port de­sign and ex­pec­ta­tions.

To­day, as the air­port cel­e­brates its 20th an­niver­sary, DEN has grown to be­come the fifth busiest air­port in the United States and the 15th-busiest in the world. With a record-set­ting 53.4 mil­lion pas­sen­gers in 2014, DEN is one of the busiest air­line hubs in the world’s largest avi­a­tion mar­ket. The air­port is the pri­mary eco­nomic en­gine for the state of Colorado, gen­er­at­ing more than $26 bil­lion for the state an­nu­ally and sup­port­ing nearly 190,000 jobs.

DEN has the third-largest U.S. do­mes­tic net­work and of­fers over 170 non­stop do­mes­tic and in­ter­na­tional des­ti­na­tions, with in­creas­ing air ser­vice to coun­tries out­side the United States. DEN serves about 20 in­ter­na­tional non­stop des­ti­na­tions, in­clud­ing Lon­don, Tokyo, Reyk­javik
