The Sky High Price of Technical Baggage at Denver Airport The opening of the Denver International Airport was delayed by sixteen months because of technical difficulties experienced in the baggage handling system de Neufville, Conspiracy theorists deem that the failed baggage system is merely a government cover-up of underground bunkers created for the protection of the Illuminati inside the depths of the Rocky Mountains Hoeller, In the case study of the failure of the project, there is far more to the catastrophe than a conspiracy.
Denver has traditionally been home to one of the busier airports in the nation because of its location.
At times, Stapleton was a hub for three or four airlines. The main reasons that justified the construction of the new DIA included the fact that gate space was severely limited at Stapleton, and the Stapleton runways were unable to deal efficiently with Denver's weather and wind patterns, causing nationwide travel disruption.
Two years later, Mayor Wellington Webb inherited the megaprojectscheduled to open on October 29, Delays caused by poor planning and repeated design changes due to changing requirements from United Airlines caused Mayor Webb to push opening day back, first to Decemberthen to March By Septemberdelays due to a millwright strike and other events meant opening day was pushed back again, to May 15, In Aprilthe city invited reporters to observe the first test of the new automated baggage system.
Reporters were treated to scenes of clothing and other personal effects scattered beneath the system's tracks, while the actuators that moved luggage from belt to belt would often toss the luggage right off the system instead.
The mayor cancelled the planned May 15 opening. The baggage system continued to be a maintenance hassle and was finally terminated in September with traditional baggage handlers manually handling cargo and passenger luggage.
On September 25,the airport hosted a fly-in that drew several hundred general aviation aircraft, providing pilots with a unique opportunity to operate in and out of the new airport, and to wander around on foot looking at the ground-side facilities—including the baggage system, which was still under testing.
FAA controllers also took advantage of the event to test procedures, and to check for holes in radio coverage as planes taxied around and among the buildings. KDEN as its codes from Stapleton when the latter airport closed.
During the blizzard of March 17—19,the weight of heavy snow tore a hole in the terminal's white fabric roof. Several thousand people were stranded at DIA. The airport was closed for more than 45 hours, stranding thousands.
As part of the original design of the airport the city specified passenger volume "triggers" that would lead to a redevelopment of the master plan and possible new construction to make sure the airport is able to meet Denver's needs.
As part of the master plan update, the airport announced selection of Parsons Corporation to design a new hotel, rail station and two bridges leading into the main terminal.
The airport has the ability to add up to six additional runways, bringing the total number of runways to Once fully built out, DIA should be able to handle million passengers per year, up from 32 million at its opening.
The land was transferred from Adams County to Denver after a vote,  increasing the city's size by 50 percent and bifurcating the western portion of the neighboring county.
All freeway traffic accessing the airport from central Denver leaves the city and passes through Aurora for just shy of 2 miles, making the airport a practical exclave.
Similarly, the A Line rail service connecting the airport with downtown Denver has two intervening stations in Aurora.Search and browse our historical collection to find news, notices of births, marriages and deaths, sports, comics, and much more.
