The achievement also marks the ninth consecutive month of passenger traffic increases, stretching back to October 2017.

“Denver’s booming economy and record-setting tourism numbers combined with continued air service growth have put us on track for another record-breaking year,” said DIA CEO Kim Day. “We appreciate the investment of our airlines in the Denver market as they offer passengers more nonstop destinations than ever before.”

The growth in the airport’s passenger traffic for the month of June is a 4.5 percent increase from 2017 and currently stands as the busiest month in DIA aviation history.
