A month after announcing it had set a new record for annual passenger traffic last year, Denver International Airport revealed that it notched another record in 2016: for revenue.
DIA's gross revenues edged up 4.4 percent last year from the year before, to a record $976.4 million, airport officials said Monday. And operating revenue for 2016 is estimated at $777.1 million, according to preliminary and unaudited figures.
Both categories include revenue from airline operations and airport businesses. The gross revenue figure also includes "non-operating" revenue sources such as grants, interest payments and a federally mandated $4.50 per person "passenger facility charge" that's tacked on to tickets to help pay for safety, security and noise mitigation projects.
DIA’s operating revenue has grown 21.1 percent since 2010, and the non-airline revenue portion of that has jumped by 56.5 percent since 2010, the airport said.
