Future of KDEN Tracking Thread

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).


#205

Too expensive. Would have to build whole new building, taxiways, gates, and lights as well as extend the underground train.


#206

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 :)


#207

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.


#208

I loved your master plan info by the way.

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.


#211

Who is going to the the A Concourse regional gates?


#212

Most likely a regional airline such as Boutiqe or Great Lakes. Maybe we’ll see charter flights go there as well.


#213

Those aren’t commuter gates. Those airlines already have their parking spots.

Oh! I almost forgot. This was in the article for anti who is curious on when Denver will build concourse D:

When complete, DIA’s existing concourses will be nearly maxed out – requiring the construction of a new Concourse D for any future expansion.
But DIA CEO Kim Day told the council subcommittee that a new concourse isn’t expected to be needed for another 10 to 15 years.


#216

Nooo! I want that new Concourse now lol


#217

Denver Service to Munich as been upgraded to the A350!

For everyone who voted for these routes, Congratulations!


#218

A330, A340, A350… 😂 Lufthansa can’t make up their mind. Maybe we’ll get an A380! 😂😂


#219

Ohh If only… 😍✈️ That would be pretty cool.


#220

I hope so!

Fun fact:

An A380 has never landed at KDEN


#221

I know, I live here.


#223

I heard from the airport itself that this is replacing the A340-600 during the summer time.!
Also …YESSSSSSSS :)


#224

While you talk to the airport again… Ask about KDEN-KISP :)
