Denver International Airport

Located within 30 miles of Broomfield, Denver International Airport (DIA) is the fifth-busiest airport in the United States and 13th busiest in the world. DIA serves more than 180 destinations, including an ever-growing list of international destinations, including: Tokyo, Japan; Reykajavik, Iceland; Mexico City, Mexico; and Panama City, Panama.

Hotel & Transit Center

The new Hotel and Transit Center is the next step in enhancing Denver International Airport's competitive standing as a leading global airport and positioning DIA for continued growth.

It is made up of independent, yet physically integrated projects, which include design and construction of:
  • A 519-room Westin hotel and conference center
  • A public transit center, which will include a commuter rail station connecting the airport with downtown Denver and a centralized pick-up and drop-off for all Regional Transportation District (RTD) buses serving the airport
  • A public plaza, Denver's newest venue for programs and events where passengers and visitors can find entertainment, relaxation art and restaurants

Rail to DIA

The University of Colorado A Line (formerly known as the East Rail Line) is a 22.8-mile commuter rail transit corridor that operates between Denver Union Station and Denver International Airport. The A Line connects these two important areas while serving adjacent employment centers, neighborhoods and development areas in Denver and Aurora.
