Denver DEN Airport Overview

Denver International Airport DEN - also known as 'DIA' - is the State of Colorado's primary airport, serving its 'Mile-High City' Denver and surrounding counties. It is the highest airport in the United States, covers 55 square miles, and is also one of world's  largest airports - with plenty of room to grow.  Someone described Denver Airport as 'being like an apparition of snowy white peaks floating over the empty plains' - referring to Jeppesen Terminal's roof.   At the 2014 Skytrax survey, announced in spring 2015, Denver Airport came in as the eighth among the World's 10 best airports, and third among North America's best airports. It also ranked number 2 for 'Best Airport Staff' & 'Best Regional Airport' in North America.
DEN is now the first U.S. airport to secure international Carbon accreditation.
