Bag drop service for passengers returns to Denver International Airport

Denver International Airport (DEN) has announced the return of its free bag drop service at the Transit Centre. The service allows passengers to print their boarding passes and check their bags before entering the terminal.

“This free service was suspended last year due to low passenger volumes because of the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Phil Washington, CEO of DEN. “Now that passenger traffic is rebounding, we are excited to bring back this amenity to help make the journey through DEN more efficient and enjoyable, especially for those arriving by bus or train.”

Bag drop is a free service offered by DEN and is available for domestic flights on United, Delta, American, and Spirit airlines. Southwest passengers will be able to use the service starting 5 September. Passengers using bag drop must be checked in and have dropped off their bags at least 90 minutes before their flight. Airline bag fees are paid at the bag drop kiosk and passengers with lap infants must go to the ticket counter for the child’s boarding pass, per airline regulations.

The service is available daily from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. and is located on Level One of the Westin Denver International Airport, just steps from the A-line commuter rail from downtown Denver.
