4,192,174 passengers used Denver
International Airport in May 2009, a 5.8% decline from the
4,450,742 travelers recorded in the same month last year.
Even with the decline, it was DIA’s
third-busiest May since opening for business in February 1995.
Through May, the airport’s year-to-date passenger
count rose to 19,628,746. That was down 1,092,645, or 5.3%,
from the 20,721,391 travelers recorded at the facility during the
first five months of 2008.
The continued effect of
airline capacity reductions also was reflected in the number of
flight operations at DIA in May.
Operations that month totaled
50,574, down 6.2% from May 2008. For the year,
DIA’s operations totaled 249,196, a decline of 4.3% over the same
period last year.
