Denver International Airport (IATA: DEN), often called DIA, is, by land size at 53 square miles (140 km2), the largest international airport in the United States, and the third largest international airport in the world after King Fahd International Airport and Montreal-Mirabel International Airport. Runway 16R/34L is the longest public use runway in the United States.
In 2008, the airport was the tenth-busiest airport in the world by passenger traffic with 51,245,334 passengers. Denver Airport was also the fifth-busiest airport in the world by aircraft movements with 625,884 movements.
It is located in extreme northeastern Denver, Colorado, and is operated by the City and County of Denver. Denver International Airport is the busiest and largest airport in the United States without non-stop service to and from Asia, although the airport is actively seeking such flights.The airport was voted the 2005 Best Airport in North America by readers of Business Traveler Magazine and was named "America's Best Run Airport" by Time Magazine in 2002.
Airport officials say its large area contributes to it having the highest number of wildlife strikes in the United States (2,090 this decade - although it ranked seventh on basis of takeoffs and landings).
Since commencing service to Denver in January 2006, Southwest has added over 40 destinations, making Denver its fastest-growing market.
