As of 2016, Denver is the 18th busiest airport in the world and the 6th busiest in the U.S. by passenger traffic, serving as the main gateway into the Rocky Mountains and the Interior West of the United States. The airport opened in 1995, replacing the old Stapleton airport that was closer to the city itself in favor of an expansive plot of land that would give the airport plenty of room to grow if necessary—indeed, Denver is the largest airport in the country by total land area. The airport is notable for its unusual aesthetics and architecture, with a single centralized terminal with its distinctive “peaked” roof, and has become the subject of conspiracy theories in certain circles.

Southwest dominates Concourse C, United occupies the entirety of Concourse B, and Frontier has a major presence in Concourse A.
