Denver International Airport Again Sets All-Time Record for Passenger Traffic With 61.4 Million Passengers in 2017

den

Today, Denver International Airport (DEN) announced that nearly 61.4 million passengers passed through the airport in 2017 – a year that saw multiple, historic firsts for DEN’s growth.

 

A total of 61,379,396 passengers traveled though DEN in 2017, an increase of 5.3 percent over the previous record of 58,266,515 passengers in 2016. December 2017 also was the busiest December in DEN history, with 4,950,804 passengers.

 

Overall international passenger traffic at DEN more than doubled the overall passenger traffic growth rate in 2017, increasing 12.5 percent over the previous year to an all-time high of 2.59 million international travelers. December 2017 was also the busiest month ever for international passengers at DEN, increasing nearly 17 percent over December 2016. International traffic growth over the last year was driven in part by new service and new airlines, including Copa Airlines to Panama City, Panama; United to Cozumel, Mexico; Norwegian to London Gatwick; Air Canada to Vancouver; and Southwest to Belize City, Belize. Aeromexico, Icelandair and Lufthansa also contributed to the record-setting year.

 

The summer of 2017 was extraordinarily busy, setting 70 of the top 100 busiest days in the airport’s history. July was the busiest month ever for DEN, tallying more than 5.8 million passengers. The airport also experienced the single busiest day in its history on June 30, 2017, with 197,276 passengers. And, in late May, DEN celebrated its billionth passenger since the facility opened on Feb. 28, 1995.

 

DEN served 187 nonstop destinations around the world during 2017, six more than during the previous year. New destinations added in 2017, which were not served in 2016, include: Long Beach, California (LGB); Belize City, Belize (BZE); Pensacola, Florida (PNS); San Luis Obispo, California (SBP); Providence, Rhode Island (PVD); Columbia, Missouri (COU); London-Gatwick, United Kingdom (LGW); Prescott, Arizona (PRC); and Cozumel, Mexico (CZM). In addition, two new foreign-flag airlines inaugurated service at DEN in 2017, Norwegian and Copa, and one new domestic carrier, ViaAir. There were 23 commercial passenger airlines serving flights at DEN in 2017.

 

We thank all of our passengers for making 2017 such a roaring success, and we can't wait to see what 2018 will bring.
