Denver International Airport (DEN) held a groundbreaking ceremony this week for Phase 2 of the airport’s Great Hall Project that will be highlighted by a new security checkpoint, expected to be completed in 2024.
Phase 2’s new security checkpoint on DEN Level 6 will eventually create new opportunities to repurpose the vacated security space on Level 5 with new concessions and improved meeter/greeter amenities.
“The new security checkpoint will have improved technology and a new queuing concept that will provide more effective and efficient security,” said Kim Day, DEN CEO. “These improvements combined with the new ticketing pods being constructed as part of Phase 1 will ultimately allow us to build a terminal for the future with enhanced security, increased capacity, improved operational efficiency and an elevated passenger experience.”
Phase 2 work will take place simultaneously with the completion of the Phase 1 portion of the Great Hall project as crews complete the work on the new ticketing areas for United and Southwest Airlines, the airport said.
