Over 5.7 million passengers passed through Denver International Airport (DEN) in
October 2018, setting the record as the busiest October ever at the airport and marking the 13th consecutive month of record-breaking passenger traffic.
In October 2018, DEN passenger traffic was up eight percent over October 2017. Passenger traffic has been growing steadily at DEN. In the past 12 months, over 63.8 million passengers have traveled though the airport, the most ever in a 12-month period.
New routes on several airlines contributed to the increased passenger traffic. During October, Frontier Airlines added service to Lafayette, Louisiana and Jackson, Mississippi, and United Airlines added service to Monterey, California, all destinations that were brand-new for DEN.
“Denver International Airport continues to be a leading hub for airline growth, as United, Frontier and Southwest all added new routes in October,” said CEO Kim Day. “As we prepare for the busy holiday season, we’re on pace for another record-setting year. We encourage passengers to arrive early and enjoy our great food, shopping and activities before travelling and maybe even spend some time on our ice skating rink.”
Passenger traffic was not the only area of growth at DEN for the month of October. In fact, more than 55 million pounds of cargo passed through DEN in October, a 10 percent increase over October 2017.
