Frontier Airlines to Add Gates and Ground-Level Tarmac at Denver Airport
DENVER INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT, Colo. (KDVR) — Frontier is changing the way you fly with the airline by 2024.
The Denver City Council has approved a lease agreement with Frontier Airlines that will increase its gate count at Denver International Airport from nine to 14.
Currently, Frontier serves 80 cities nonstop from Denver. With the increase in the number of gates, the airline can increase the number of flights it offers.
Not only does Frontier plan to expand the number of gates, but it also plans to build a new waiting area near Terminal A. The new facility will be 120,000 square feet in size and will be entirely at ground level with no walkways. Passengers will board the flights from the tarmac.
The plan amends the contract for a total cost of more than $1.1 billion with a two-year construction end date of Dec. 31, 2024. The airline also agrees to give Denver Public Schools $600,000 for their 2022 summer youth employment program that will serve 194 youth from across the city.
Frontier signs a 10-year agreement with DIA that will keep hundreds of jobs in the Mile High City for another decade.
