Greater Metro Area Airports


Denver International Airport is the major airport for scheduled airline service for the area along I-25, from Pueblo, CO, to Cheyenne, WY. Colorado Springs Airport /Petersen Field, on the other hand, has occasionally served as a lower-cost alternative for Denver's southern suburbs, apart from its primary focus on the Colorado Springs area.

1. Denver International Airport DEN, located to the east of the City, is an airport in a state of constant change. It is huge, transfers can cover literally miles and, like most large airports in the country, requires a long time between arrival at the airport and arrival at the gate where your flight departs from. Even though in terms of cleanliness and service, Denver is still one of the better large US airports, it can be quite intimidating to the not-so-frequent traveler. For those who are not fit walkers and have to meet a scheduled transfer flight, it is highly recommended that you hail one of those frequently running carts to make it on time.

2. Colorado Springs Airport COS, 6 miles east of Colorado Springs, is one of the easiest and fastest airports to get in and out of and serves over 2 million passengers a year with over a hundred daily flights and many non-stops to US cities. Major airlines offer domestic and international connections. The new automated parking system with plenty of automated exit lanes, open 24/7, make for a fast exit. Approximate Travel time to Colorado Springs is 25 minutes, while to Denver 70 minutes.
