DEN, United Open 12 New Gates

Denver International Airport (DEN) and United Airlines held a ceremony celebrating the completion of the Gate Expansion Program with the opening of new gates on Concourses A and B.

The 12 new gates on A-West and 10 new gates on B-East are being leased by United Airlines, bringing the airline up to a total of 90 gates at DEN, their largest hub. The A-West expansion areas include six gates that accompany international flights, as well as 16 hold rooms and a new United Club.

The B-East expansion includes 12 hold rooms and 126 square feet of new space. It also is the home of the new United Club FlySM, designed for busy travelers who want to grab a snack, beverage or barista-made coffee on their way to boarding.

Both new expansions also feature comfortable seating, charging stations, new restrooms and nursing rooms, with dining and retail options expected next year.  Overall, the Gate Expansion Program in all three concourses added 29 new gates, boosting capacity at the airport by 30 percent.

“The completion of the Gate Expansion Program continues to position DEN as one of the top international airports,” Phil Washington, DEN CEO. “In addition, DEN stays true to our Vision 100 pillars of growing our infrastructure and expanding our global connections.”
