Denver DEN Airport Overview

Denver International Airport DEN - referred to by locals as  'DIA' - but internationally known as DEN, its Airport Code - 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.  DEN is now the first U.S. airport to secure international Carbon accreditation.
