Frontier Airlines and Denver International Airport (DEN) celebrated a ceremonial ground-breaking for the new 120,000-ft² ground boarding facility on the east end of Concourse A at Denver International Airport. The project includes the re-modelling of 83,000 ft² of space, along with a 37,000 ft² expansion area. The facility will feature 14 gates and an adjacent 8,000 ft² maintenance facility.
“We’re thrilled to join with our partners at Denver International Airport and the City of Denver to break ground on this new facility, which will provide a beautiful, convenient, customer-centric experience for departing and arriving Frontier passengers,” said Barry Biffle, CEO of Frontier Airlines. “The use of ground boarding will cut boarding and deplaning times in half by allowing customers access to aircraft from the front and rear and will help support our expansion at DEN. As Colorado’s hometown airline, we are excited to further grow our commitment to the Denver community and beyond and offer an exceptional customer experience at DEN.”
The entire facility will be complete and operational by mid-2024.
