United has announced plans to significantly grow its position as “Denver’s leading airline”, with new flights, routes, gates and clubs.

Starting this summer, United will double the total number of early morning departures and late evening arrivals in and out of Denver.

The airline’s local infrastructure improvements include 12 new gates set to open in the A and B concourses by the middle of 2024. That will give United 90 total gates, the most at DenverInternational Airport.

This expansion is part of the carrier’s nearly $1 billion investment to further improve the customer experience in Denver – an increase in gate capacity by 30%, a new check-in lobby, new user-friendly technology at gates, a new grab-n-go club concept called United Club Fly and the renovation and expansion of United Club locations.

This summer, United will also open a new club on the A Concourse and reopen its first of two revamped clubs on the B Concourse. The B concourse United Club locations will be the largest ever. All three United Club locations will feature two full levels of club space, and an upgraded design that reflects the Coloradoregion.

Denver is one of the fastest growing cities in the country and as the Mile High City’s most flown airline, it’s essential that we maintain the most modern infrastructure and fleet to support our local employees and customers and deliver a great experience. Our expansion in Denver will further enable us to connect our customers to destinations across the globe and revitalize our presence at the airport with modern, customer friendly offerings.

Scott Kirby, CEO, United.

As a result of the airline’s United Next plan, United will expand mainline flying out of Denverto its highest levels in 20 years, while repurposing its regional fleet to fly to smaller, less-served destinations. Overall, United will offer more capacity from Denver than ever before, with over 60,000 departing seats per day. In total, United will operate 35 new flights in 2023 out of Denver and since 2018, has added over 90 mainline departures per day.
