A total of 4,017,761 passengers used Denver International Airport in
September 2008, a 1.7% increase over the 3,951,172 travelers recorded at
the facility in the same month last year. It was the first time in the history of the Denver airport that the September passenger count
exceeded 4 million, and the 21st straight month in which DIA’s traffic set a monthly record.
The September figure brought DIA’s total for the first three quarters of the year to
39,338,285.That was 3.6% higher than the 37,958,066 travelers who passed through the airport
during the same period of 2007, the year DIA set its record of 49.8 million passengers.
The 1.7% monthly increase followed a 1.6% increase in August. Airport officials
had predicted in the summer that passenger numbers would drop off later in the year as the
airlines reduce capacity to cope with high fuel costs.
“This is exactly what we expected would happen as the airlines find ways to trim their operating
costs,” Denver Aviation Manager Kim Day said. “Still, our passenger numbers are
ahead of last year, and that shows the strength of the Denver market.”
Flight operations in September fell 1.6% to 49,397. That brought DIA’s year-to-date total
to 476,690 operations, up 2.5% compared with the same period of 2007.
