Now before you ask me if I’m feeling okay, yes I am and I don’t know everything about KDEN. I was recently in KDEN and I was exploring some gates that almost never get mentioned in trip reports.
I explored the ground level Concourse in A that houses gates A62-A99. Very rarely do I hear people talk about it and I almost never see a jet engine airline use it since NKS moves to Concourse C.
So I was curious and headed down. Gates A62-A76 used for all the turbo prop airlines like Boutiqe Air, Key Lime Air, and used to house Great Lakes Aviation.
Since I’ve explored this area before, I decided to explore gates A71-A99 which for those who have never visited Denver have been under construction for the past year or so. It also is accustomed only through one door and is disconnected from all the rest of the Concourse to Since he begun flying in February of last year, this portion of the Concourse has been closed off during construction. Only this past trip did I notice that it was open. So I decided to look into it.
So anyway now that you have the backstory, I was wondering if anyone has any idea what is going to happen with this portion of the airport. I have photos below. When I visited it at like 5:30 AM (which is not early for KDEN at all) it was a ghost town. Not a single person was in Concourse section. It was brightly lit, brand new, modernied with gorgeous seats and plugs everywhere and departure and arrival boards everywhere. But not a single person. It was so empty and so quiet I felt like I had gone into an area of the world that I wasn’t supposed to. It gave me goosebumps and chills being in it. It was like a horror film where an office building is standing but everyone inside has vanished. There are like cups of half drink coffee and printers humming but not a single soul is around.
That’s what this Concourse section felt like. Anyways I was simply curious if anyone knew what airlines would be usin this set of gates and if this is part of Concourse A’s expansion or what this is for. It lid a gorgeous area. I would absolutely love to fly an airline that uses these gates. I mean the bathrooms were freaking spotless. The carpets were fresh and clean. The monitors that had flight info were on and had the typical DIA monitor background.

I mean this was just creepy lol. As you can see no one is here but it looks spotless and gorgeous. Not even the turbo prop airlines use this.
