United Airlines has announced a sizeable yet exciting expansion out of Denver International Airport.
The expansion is set to cement United Airlines’ commitment to the airport with new routes and 12 new gates in A and B concourses opening by 2024. This investment in new infrastructure is part of the airport’s USD 1 billion boost.
Starting this summer, United Airlines will more than double its early morning departures and late evening arrivals. The goal is to increase customer options and make travel flexible for direct connections or onward journeys.
United Airlines has revealed Dayton, OH; Greensboro, NC; Lexington, KY and San Juan, Puerto Rico, will be added as six new nonstop destinations. Additionally, four of these are not served by any other airline out of Denver.
The 737 MAX and E175 aircraft will be pivotal to the long-term success of the new routes launching in the coming months. United says they’ll soon offer over 60,000 departing seats per day and operate 35 new flights in 2023 out of Denver.
Denver is one of the fastest growing cities in the country and as the Mile High City’s most flown airline, it’s essential that we maintain the most modern infrastructure and fleet to support our local employees and customers and deliver a great experience. Our expansion in Denver will further enable us to connect our customers to destinations across the globe and revitalize our presence at the airport with modern, customer friendly offerings.United CEO Scott Kirby
There’ll also be an increase seen in Denver’s overall gate capacity of some 30% with a new check-in lobby featuring United rolling out new technology and more to make travel smoother.
Inside the terminals, a new clubhouse will open in the A Concourse. Meanwhile, two further revamped clubs will reopen in the B Concourse. These investments in infrastructure and overall commitment to Denver see the airline continue its long-term commitment to the city.
