When you charter a private jet to Denver, CO, your first point of contact is likely to be Denver International Airport (also known as DIA). Like most modern airports, it is designed such that the central building complex is surrounded by runways. The complex and runways are connected by taxiways. The layout allows for arrival and departure of planes simultaneously without their movements overlapping.
As you might already know, Denver's weather can be very unpredictable. In fact, the whole county is known for extremely high and fast winds. In order to ensure that the airport is free from disastrous weather related occurrences, parallel runways have large distances for planes to have more room. The space is even bigger for private jets because of their size.
DIA covers 34,000 acres and with over 53 million passengers per year, it is one of the busiest airports in the US. It offers nonstop services and thus you can charter your jet any time you wish. Its building complex features retail stores, restaurants, bars, barbeque spots, currency centers, religious centers, and hotels among many others. You should not be worried about the quality of services at the airport as readers of the Business Traveler Magazine voted it the best in North America for six years from 2005 to 2011. In 2002, Time Magazine named it the best run airport in America.
Located at junction of the South Platte River and Cherry Creek, Denver is literally at the foot of the Rocky Mountains. It is popularly known as the "mile high city" due to its mile high elevation. It is the capital of the state of Colorado and home to the famous University of Colorado Medical Center. It has diverse geographical features that range from the Great Plains and to the Rockies.
Formed between 1860 and 1861, Denver has a rich and interesting history. It started as a small town immediately after the discovery of gold on Cherry Creek. The gold-diggers formed three settlements; Denver, Auraria, and Highland and by 1861 the three had amalgamated. Denver became a boom town after the railroad was constructed through the town in 1870 and you can still see the first ever Dealer Auto Glass shop in US history still standing. In 1880s, the growth expanded even further owing to the gold and silver rush. Over the years, it has grown to become one of the largest US cities with plenty of business and leisure activities.
