DEN - Most Domestic Nonstop Destinations?

Sometime within the last year or two, I saw online a report that listed the number of domestic nonstop destinations from the U.S. airports. I remember ATL having the most, followed closely by DEN. I can’t find this report online for reference, perhaps someone can help me out here.

However, seeing DL cutting back some at ATL, and then despite all of the doomsday predictions of DEN, DEN has actually had quite a number of new domestic destinations added recently from UA, F9 and WN - that may now make it the top U.S. airport (at least per my observations here) in terms of number of domestic nonstop destinations. Per my own counting.....

here are the current (or soon to be) DEN nonstop domestic destinations (* designates seasonal service)

for a total of 151 with 142 yearly and 9 seasonal destinations.

The next airport is ORD, very close behind ATL with a total of 150, with 140 yearly and 10 seasonal destinations. DFW, DTW, LAS, and MSP are among the top here as well.

I counted domestic destinations as any point within the 50 states. And any flight that has at least 52 flights per year throughout the year is counted as yearly.

So as per above, has DEN taken the top spot (although unofficial) in terms of airports in the U.S. for the most number of commercial nonstop domestic destinations?

And then per the T-100, the cities of BUF, RIC, ORF, ALB, and PBI do not have nonstop service to/from DEN, but show passenger counts that could at least support nonstops on mainline from O&D alone. Will these nonstops materialize sometime soon? There could be a few more destinations as well, and certainly some regional airports such as SAF, MHK, SUN and GRI that may well feed into DEN.

I gathered my information from several sources to best have current accuracy. However, any corrections, comments, etc, are welcome.

MHK is actively evaluating DEN service. It will materialize in a year or more, nothing short term, afaik.

DFW is growing lots of new little spokes. GCK, MHK, GRI, JLN, etc. on Eagle. More to come!

DEN can't support all of the capacity that it currently has, and there's going to be lots of cuts............ it can't support three major airlines hubbing here...........

UA/CO doesn't need DEN and will leave it after the merger.....

F9 is going to go broke and will close down.... (which, who knows?) or abandon DEN altogether and find a new hub.....

WN is going to get tired of throwing all of its hard-earn $$$$ down the bottomless DEN money pit, and will cede to UA and F9 and will leave DEN.....

ZK is going to go broke and will close down..... (again, who knows?)

I think that those are the bulk of it......

And I think that everyone here has seen such posts.......

Yes it is, and a great place to break up a trans-con journey that doesn't offer a non-stop service. Stapleton sucked, but DIA is a very nice facility, I would choose it over DFW, ORD, DTW or MSP.

I think most of reading that knew what he was doing. I think they are legitimate scenarios its the timeline thats not realistic of people on here. I expect denver to keep three hubs for a while just not permanently. Its gonna take either a huge huge spike in fuel costs, frontier to finally go under, southwest high ups change, or uniteds contracts being over from the city of denver and willing to abandon the profitable small rocky mountain airports. Any of those i think are along time away but one thing is for certain Denver will be someones hub that airport will never be hubless even in this turbulant industry we have. I dont think anyone on here or anywhere can possibly see a scenario where denver is hubless which is just awesome for the city and companies considering a relocation

Hey, this is really cool...... and many thanks...... didn't know about this site. Is this an anyone-can-view site, or by membership? And if anyone-can-view, is it possible to post link?

At any rate, I guess DEN is tops here, and I guess that the variances may be due to seasonal flights, but these numbers are pretty close to what I got - as well as me adding in some future routes.

I'm puzzled that LAS isn't up there..... does OAG count G4?

So again, ty, and It's good to see DEN be tops in another metric.

That is an excellent question G4 serves just a ton of unique cities to las. It seems hard to believe las isn't in the top ten. Ifind it hard to imagine dca has more destinations than las? Las is such massive airport o & d but it always feels to me like it has a ton of destinations also

Good catch. G4 does not file their scheds, outside of their website. However, from another source, adding in G4, LAS has 120 nonstop destinations.

Yep, and it seems that there are a lot of places to fly from the airport..... at least within the 50 states......

And I'm sure a lot of people want to get into town for a while..... or at least get into DEN and then get up into the mountains.

SEA/LAX/PHX/SLC/MSP/DTW/ATL/PHL/BOS/LGA/LAS and DEN are 11 routes that I believe currently have four carries on them. Sometime a year or two ago I remember counting an additional 25 or so routes with 3 carriers, but since then, F9 has dropped a handful of them, and then NK picks up a couple...... so I'm guesstimating about 22-23 of the 3-carrier destinations.



Quoting slcdeltarumd11 (Reply 11):

Or maybe likely a dual hub, or a triple hub, or even the current quadruple hub if we count ZK? And yes, it is fortunate to have a good number of options and selections with competitive fares. Yet who knows what the future will bring, and certainly any or the many number of things can happen that could upset present status at DEN?

With some 52M+ pax in 2011 (around 55% O&D), and while looking at current guesstimates by city officials here of some 62M pax at DEN by 2020 - maybe even another major airline can decide it wants a hub here too..... along with UA, F9, WN, and ZK?

Who knows, eh?

So with all of the above, we have to remember - Bluecifer
with his welcome to the airport -
to those of the New World Order -
and also to those who have scheduled to visit us from outer space......

ok so LAS is at least in the top five that seems realistic at least! Remember Allegiant doesnt fly to all destinations daily. Allegiant lists 47 destinations non stop out of LAS and very few of them have competators so they really do add alot to the airport

Congrats to DEN! Having the most nonstop domestic destinations in the US is a pretty awesome thing. Denver is a pretty cool city and very beautiful.   

I think what helps drive this figure is DEN's geography. DEN is located within a prop planes flight of many communities that have limited road service. Because of this, ZK has a huge operation there. Its a similar effect with ATL and CLT.

I do have to point out that the flip side of that coin is that DEN only serves 16 International destinations (by my count). Outside of Mexico and Canada, they only serve four (including the upcoming NRT service).
