Airports in Denver

Denver International Airport (DEN)


One of the largest and busiest airports in the US, Denver International Airport is a perfectly situated airport with huge windows giving passengers a chance to enjoy the magnificent view of the nearby Rocky Mountains. A modern facility with plenty of shopping and dining opportunities, the attractive terminal is itself designed to resemble those snow-capped peaks, a fact obvious as one approaches the airport by car or plane.

A major US air traffic hub, Denver International Airport processes more than 20 million people each year on flights to destinations across North America and Europe. Located 25 miles (40km) from downtown Denver, the airport is a great introduction to the beauty of the Rocky Mountains, and the popular ski resorts in Colorado.


The airport is situated 26 miles (42km) east of Denver and is the gateway to the Rocky Mountains.
