History of Centennial Airport
Centennial Airport opened its doors to Colorado in 1968 under a different name. The Arapahoe Airport replaced its name with Centennial 16 years later. It is labeled by the FAA as a relief airport, built to bear the region’s passenger influx. Situated 15 miles off downtown Denver, the airport is primarily used by passengers visiting Aspen and nearby hiking and ski resorts. Scheduled airlines are not operational on the airfield.
Centennial Airport Terminals
Being a solely general aviation airport, Centennial Airport does not house any traditional terminals. The fixed-base operators define passenger routes within the airport; on the north of the airfield are TAC Air and Denver Jet Center, while the south facilitates passengers booked under Signature Flight Support and Modern Aviation.
