Denver International Airport

Denver International Airport (DIA) is the fourth busiest airport in the US. It is located northeast of downtown Denver and it takes about 25 minutes by cab or shuttle to get to the airport. The city's public transport system, Regional Transportation District (RTD), operates five bus routes under the frequent airport express bus service called skyRide. Transportation is also available to ski resorts and attractions.

DIA is a hub for United and Frontier. Most major airlines fly into DIA. There are more than 130 direct flights to U.S. and international destinations (Cananda, Europe and Mexico). Currently, British Airways and Lufthansa have flights from European airports.
