Frontier Airlines and Denver International Airport (DEN) celebrated a ceremonial groundbreaking for the new 120,000-square-foot ground boarding facility on the east end of Concourse A at Denver International 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.
Frontier President and CEO Barry Biffle, Denver International Airport CEO Phil Washington and City of Denver Councilwoman Stacie Gilmore, along with Frontier mascot Griz the Grizzly Bear, placed shovels in the dirt to mark the project’s ceremonial groundbreaking.
The new facility will feature a variety of customer conveniences including charging stations, nursing room, pet relief area, food and retail operations and a customer service center. Escalators will transport customers from the existing Concourse A to the new ground-level facility. Air stairs and switchback ramps will enable dual door boarding and deplaning. Frontier will have preferential use and scheduling rights for the 14 gates, along with exclusive branding rights throughout the facility.
A new 8,000-square-foot maintenance facility will allow for centralization of personnel and parts in close proximity to the gates.
The entire facility will be complete and operational by mid-2024.
