Denver remains on pace for record-setting traffic year

Denver International Airport remains on pace for a record-setting year of passenger traffic as international traffic continued to climb and overall traveller numbers were essentially flat in November.

Total passenger traffic in November fell 0.1%, with 4,029,659 passengers compared to 4,033,321 in November 2013, and through to the end of November remains up 2.2%, at 49,075,222, compared to 48,040,044 travellers at the same point in 2013.

International passenger traffic growth remained robust in November, rising more than 11% above November 2013, as traffic increases on Lufthansa, Volaris and Icelandair flights helped boost overall international traffic.

Denver International Airport CEO, Kim Day, explains: “November marked the 31st consecutive month of international passenger growth at DIA.

“Total annual passenger traffic at DIA for 2014 remains on a record-setting pace and we are optimistic that we will finish higher than the previous annual passenger traffic record of 53.1 million, set in 2012.”

Additionally, mail, freight and express cargo operations saw 43,174,138 pounds of cargo, a 7.5% increase in November compared to the same month last year.

To date, 468,322,034 pounds of cargo have been handled at DIA in 2014, up 3.4% from 452,993,937 pounds of cargo handled during the same timeframe in 2013.
