Airport Terminal Information: Denver International Airport’s main terminal, the Jeppesen Terminal, is named after businessman and aviation pioneer Elrey B. Jeppesen, whose “Jepp” navigational maps and charts are standard equipment in almost every commercial airline cockpit in the world. The roadway divides the terminal to East (blue) and West Terminals (red) and separates the traffic into 3 levels for greater convenience and less traffic congestion.

Upper Level, level 6: Departures, departing passengers; curbside baggage check in and airline ticket counters.
Commercial Level, level 5: Ground transportation: drop-off/pickup lanes for taxis, car rental vans, airport shuttles and buses.
Lower Level, level 4: Arrivals and passenger pickup.

There are three separate security screening areas in the main Jeppesen Terminal. Two are in the central area and one is on the north side of the terminal. After passing through security screening, passengers can continue into the secure air side of the airport.

There are 3 Concourses in Denver international Airport. They do not connect directly to the Jeppesen Terminal. Instead, an automated train system called the AGTS (Automated Guideway Transit System) transports passengers from the Jeppesen Terminal to the three concourses. To access concourse B & C, the passengers have to utilize the train. There are four trains available, which together can move approximately 8,300 passengers per hour in both directions. It takes a train about 11 minutes to complete its 2.4-mile round-trip route. Each trains stops seven times.

In addition to the automated train, an overhead bridge links the Jeppesen Terminal to Concourse A. The top bridge level is used by international arriving passengers to move from their arrival gates to the Immigration and Customs area inside the main Terminal. The lower bridge level can be used by domestic passengers to continue to Concourse A from the Jeppesen Terminal without taking the automated train.

There are unique displays of art and artifacts, variety of shops, restaurants and services in the main terminal. Restaurants range from fast food in food courts to sit down, relax.

City of Denver: Popularly known as the ‘Mile High City’, Denver is the capital and the largest city of the state of Colorado, US. The name Mile High comes from the fact that the western entrance stairs to the State Capitol is exactly a mile high (5,280 feet/1,609 m) above sea level. It lies on the western edge of the Great Plains in north-central Colorado bordered on the east by the Rockies. Denver benefiting from its geographical position has become a fast growing metropolitan city and serves as a regional hub, especially in wholesaling, finance, and transportation. Denver offers a spectacular blend of historical cowboy and mining past with the present festivals of culture and arts, beautiful parks, and sports passion to its visitors. It is one of the two cities in the US with 8 professional sports teams like the NHL Colorado Avalanche, NBA Denver Nuggets, NFL Denver Broncos, Major League Baseball's Colorado Rockies to name a few. The mild climate and year-round sunny days make Denver a very interesting place for tourism.

Denver History: The first settlements were built in mid 1800s following the findings of gold in Pikes Peak. In 1858, a town was established at the confluence of Cherry Creek and the South Platte River, but the site was abandoned in favor of Auraria and St.Charles City. On November 22 1, 1858, General William Larimer, a land speculator claimed the site and named it “Denver” after James W. Denver, Governor of Kansas Territory.

The Colorado Territory was created on February 28, 1861. Arapahoe County was formed on November 1 and Denver City on November 7 the same year. In 1865 Denver City became the Territorial Capital and the name was shortened to just Denver.


Denver Geography: Denver lies in the center of Colorado, east of the Front Range of Rocky Mountains and west of the High Plains. The city has only 1.6 square miles of water body, which is 1.03% of the 154.9 square miles total area. The South Platte River flows to the city and small lakes, creeks and reservoirs add the beauty of the area.

The City and County of Denver is encircled by Adams County on the north and east, Arapahoe County on the south and east, and Jefferson County on the west.

Denver Climate: Denver’s Climate is influenced by its location on the great plains, and east of Rockies mountain, it is far from any source of moisture thus giving Denver a mild, dry and arid climate. Denver has 4 seasons. From November to February, Denver enjoys winter which is considered mild with average daily high temperature of 45 degrees Fahrenheit. Snow falls in winter from time to time, but melts quickly. In summer, dry relative humidity gives Denver cool, comfortable and sunny days. The average daily high temperature in August is 86 degrees Fahrenheit. Fall on September and October gives cool and crisp temperature, but it varies greatly. It is the most delightful time to visit Denver, excursions to the mountain. Spring lasts from March to May, but spring brings with it greater variety of temperature changes, in fact, March is Denver's snowiest month, averaging 11.7 inches (29.7 cm) of snow. Furthermore, warm air blowing from the Gulf of Mexico may cause thunderstorm, and continental warm air contribute to a summer-like warm and dry conditions.
