Terminals, airlines and destinations
Denver International Airport has three midfield concourses , spaced far apart. Concourse A is accessible via a pedestrian bridge directly from the terminal building, as well as via the underground train system that services all three concourses. For access to Concourses B and C, passengers must utilize the underground train system . Since the design of the airport countenanced no back-up plan to the train system (for instance, no underground pedestrian tunnels) the occasions on which the trains have failed have been embarrassing to the airport management.
United Airlines controls about 57% of all the passenger traffic at DIA.
The concourses and main terminal have a similar layout compared to Atlanta's airport , except that DEN has no "T" gates directly attached to the terminal.
The airport charges relatively high landing fees to airlines in order to offset its construction costs as a direct result of the airport being built to support hub operations of United and Continental. Continental subsequently abandoned the hub shortly before their Bankruptcy in the 90's and prior to the Airport opening. While these fees had led to an effort to increase competition from Colorado Springs Airport , the failure of Western Pacific Airlines and Southwest Airlines 's decision to operate out of DIA has left DIA as the only major national airport in the region.
On December 14 , 2006 , The Denver Post reported that DIA is expanding Concourse C in the airport's "first major concourse expansion." At least eight new gates will be constructed at the east end of Concourse C estimated at a total of approximately $160 million. Construction on Concourse C is estimated to take 3 years and will allow primarily Southwest Airlines , but also other carriers, to increase flight schedules at one of the nation's fastest-growing airports.
Denver International Airport's Concourse B also recently expanded with the addition of a regional jet terminal at the east side of Concourse B. This Regional Jet concourse consists of two smaller concourses or fingers which are connected to Concourse B via two bridges  . These gates allow direct jet bridge access to smaller Regional Jets . With the opening of the Regional Jet Concourse, United Airlines has left Concourse A entirely and now operates solely from Concourse B.
The Airport has also announced plans to revise the Airport Master Plan to account for changing circumstances since the airport opened. According to the December 14 , 2006 , Denver Post and Rocky Mountain News articles, plans are being drafted to extend the Main terminal to the South. This change would increase the number of ticketing counters and would also include a rail station for the terminus of the FasTracks commuter rail line from Denver 's Union Station .
Denver also stated that they have started discussions with Frontier Airlines over possibly building another Regional Jet terminal on Concourse A. Since Denver International Airport is privately funded from operations all construction would be financed by bonds.
The Pedestrian Bridge connecting DIA's Jeppesen Terminal with Concourse A. Concourse A is the only concourse at DIA that is accessible without having to board an underground train.
Denver International Airport's Jeppesen Terminal, named after aviation safety pioneer Elrey Jeppesen , is the land side of the airport. Road traffic accesses the airport directly off of Peña Blvd which in turn is fed by Interstate 70 and E-470 . Two parking garages are directly attached to the terminal. The terminal is separated into west and east terminals for passenger drop off and pickup. The central area of the airport houses two security screening areas as well as a large fountain and exits from the underground train system. The north side of the Jeppensen Terminal contains a third security screening area and a segregated immigration and customs area.
Passengers are routed first to the ticket gates for checking in. Since all gates at Denver are in the outlying concourses, passengers must pass through any one of the three separate security screening areas for admittance into the secure air side of the airport.
After leaving the main terminal via the train or pedestrian bridge, passengers can access 138 gates on 3 separate concourses (A, B, & C)
