Denver International Airport Smashes All-Time Record for Passenger Traffic
Denver International Airport broke the all-time record for passenger traffic in 2016. Nearly 58.3 million passengers passed through the airport last year, which shatters the all-time record by more than four million passengers.
A total of 58,266,515 passengers traveled though Denver in 2016, an increase of 7.9 percent over the 54,014,502 passengers in 2015 – which was previously the airport’s busiest year on record. December 2016 also was the busiest December in DIA's history, with 4,825,224 passengers and was the 16th consecutive month of record-setting passenger traffic.
The summer of 2016 was particularly busy, setting nine of the top 10 busiest days in the airport’s history in July. The airport also set a new record for the single busiest day in its history, with 188,486 passengers on Nov. 27.
