Wow, this is pretty cool for DIA. The article mentioned they would be adding 39 gates across all three concourses, but in my opinion, I think they should build a whole new concourse (maybe concourse D).
Too expensive. Would have to build whole new building, taxiways, gates, and lights as well as extend the underground train.
If you read all the way to the end, it says DIA has a $3 Billion plus expansion plan. It could be subject to change, and I think a new concourse would be nicer than a 7th runway and widening of roadways. This could possible attract more international carriers which we all would like to see :)
This is the expansion plan:
It’s a massive plan, if there not going to do it all at once. No point. They will gradually do it little by little, they already have started and completed some projects.
I loved your master plan info by the way.
Just in: Denver City Council Approves Denver Gate Expansion.
As you can see from the photo, there are plans to add 3 new international gates at concourse A and add a large amount of Southwest gates at concourse C.
Oh my gosh I’m so excited right now!! Thanks for sharing this man.
Who is going to the the A Concourse regional gates?
Most likely a regional airline such as Boutiqe or Great Lakes. Maybe we’ll see charter flights go there as well.
Those aren’t commuter gates. Those airlines already have their parking spots.
