Denver airport expecting more holiday fliers

DENVER, Colorado – More people seem to be heading home for the holidays this year in Colorado.

Denver International Airport says it expects more fliers to pass through the airport this week than during Thanksgiving week last year. The airport predicts more than 960,000 passengers between now and Monday.

If the prediction comes true, this would the second-busiest Thanksgiving week in airport history. In 2006 DIA saw more than 966,000 fliers.

Sunday will again be the busiest day or the travel period. On that day, DIA officials expect more than 160,000 travelers.
