Denver International Airport (DEN), often called DIA, is, by land size, the largest international airport in the United States, and the third largest international airport in the world, after only King Fahd International Airport, and Montréal-Mirabel International Airport. Runway 16R/34L is the longest public use runway in the United States.
Currently, Denver International Airport is the fourth busiest airport in the United States in terms of traffic, and the seventh in the world with 47,324,844 passengers passing through the airport back in 2006; a 9% increase over 2005.
The airport is located in extreme northeastern Denver, Colorado. Operated by the City and County of Denver, Denver International Airport is the busiest and largest airport in the U.S. without any non-stop service to and from Asia. DIA 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 back in 2002.
