Travel Diary: The DIA Trek
by Kieran Nicholson
The flow of travelers through Denver International Airport remains steady but manageable, and there was even room at the bar at Pour la France on the upper level of the terminal.
"The air traffic is going very well," said Chuck Cannon, a DIA spokesman.
About half of the airport's 1,700 daily flights either have come or gone by now, and officials expect the rest of the day to run without many hitches.
But there could be a bit of a rush late this afternoon, as the workday comes to an end and last-minute travelers take to the sky.
"It could get a little bit busier this evening," Cannon warned.
On Sunday, 152,000 travelers are expected to pass through DIA.
"This will be the busiest travel day of the week," Cannon said. "It looks like it will be good weather."
And if Sunday is anything like today, it will be smooth sailing.
