United Airlines says its Denver hub is the busiest it’s ever been.
United’s Denver schedule topped 500 departures for the first-time ever today, hitting that milestone after a flurry of new flights that have been added there during the past two years.
Just since the beginning of 2018, United says it has added 32 new routes from Denver, now the carrier’s third-busiest hub by departures. The new additions include high-profile additions like London Heathrow and Frankfurt as well as smaller domestic markets such as Flagstaff, Arizona, and Santa Rosa, California.
“Denver’s record growth symbolizes the investments we’re making in our people and our company, both in Denver and throughout our network,” United Airlines president Scott Kirby says in a statement. “As we focus on strengthening our mid-continent hubs, our record schedule allows us to provide our customers with a better travel experience by offering more connections and more destinations.”
United said last year that it would make strengthening its hubs a priority, improving scheduling both for local demand and to allow for more connections.
That includes Denver, where United tweaked its schedule earlier this year.
“The updated schedule increased the number of morning flights available to business customers traveling from Denver to the East and West Coasts while improving connectivity to Midwest and mountain region destinations,” United said of the schedule change.
