Denver Airport Reports Record Numbers in July 2009

Travel News Asia Latest Travel News Podcasts Videos Thursday, 17 September 2009

A total of 5,109,342 passengers passed through Denver International Airport in July 2009, a 2.2% increase from the 5,000,505 travelers who used the airport during the same month last year.

These numbers, mark DIAs busiest month in history and bucks the trend of declining passenger numbers that started last fall. It is only the second time in history that monthly traffic at DIA has topped the 5 million mark.

This is certainly good news for Denver International Airport, said Aviation Manager Kim Day. Weve been seeing our numbers drop since last October and it is refreshing to see them headed in a different direction. Although we still anticipate finishing 2009 down overall, I think that this is an encouraging sign and certainly a reflection on how strong the Denver air travel market really is.

July 2008 was previously the busiest month on record at DIA.

For the first seven months of the year, passenger traffic at DIA totaled 29,446,896, down 3.6% from the 30,551,725 passengers recorded in the first seven months of 2008. DIAs all-time record of 51.2 million passengers was set last year.

Flight operations in July 2009 totaled 55,578, a decline of 1.7% from the same month last year. For the first seven months of this year, DIAs operations totaled 358,104, down 3.6% from the comparable period of 2008.
