Frontier Airlines and Denver International Airport (DEN) held a ceremonial groundbreaking for the new 120,000-square-foot ground boarding facility on the east end of Concourse A today at Denver Airport.
The project includes the remodeling of 83,000 square feet of space, along with a 37,000 square-foot expansion area. The facility will feature 14 gates and an adjacent 8,000-square-foot 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.”
A new center will provide more parking, customer services, food and retail operations as well as charging stations.
The new 8,000-square-foot maintenance facility will allow for centralized personnel and parts in close proximity to the gates. This will improve the efficiency of gate operations and help to keep the airport running smoothly.
DEN expects the new gate facility to be operational by mid-2024.
