Denver Int'l (DEN) is one of the fastest growing major airports in the U.S. Several airlines have plans to come in with in the next 5 years. Lufthansa is to start a daily non-stop flight from Frankfurt (FRA) to Denver (DEN) on an Airbus A340-300 starting on March 25. Midway Airlines is to start TWO daily non-stop service from Raleigh-Durham to Denver on a Boeing 737-700. United is building a 36 gate commuter terminal which will be completed between 2003-2004 for the commuter flights. Also, there are plans to expand Concourse A for Frontier Airlines, and there are plans to expand Concourse B for United before 2005. Also, later on, there are plans for a Concourse D! Currently they are buliding a 16,000 ft. runway which will be completed by the end of this year.
Air France is interested in starting a daily non-stop service with in 2-3 years. Japan Airlines is planning on starting service from Tokyo to Denver with in 2 years after the new 16,000 ft. runways is completed. United Airlines is hoping to add a daily non-stop flight from Denver to London Heathrow, within 2-3 years. They've been wanting this flight for quite a while, but there are issues about flights between the U.S. and the UK. United will be adding a seasonal flight from Denver to Frankfurt starting this summer on a Boeing 777-200, and later on plans to make a non-stop daily flight with Lufthansa's flight! Air Canada has recently added non-stop flights to Montreal and Vancouver, and plans to add many more flights with in the next few years.
I'm not sure if this is true, but did I hear that Air Jamaica is starting service in June? Can someone update me on this? If so, then great! Denver Int'l (DEN) is currently the 10th busiest airport in the world, and with-in a few years will probably become the 9th and maybe even the 8th!
Kind regards to all.
