Denver International Airport - DIA - Generic

DENVER – It will be a busy day at Denver International Airport. The airport said Friday it expects to see 168,000 passengers traveling for the Christmas week.

The airport suggests travelers arrive at the airport at least two hours early to have enough time to make it through security.

Some delays are expected Friday as a winter snow storm that hit Colorado Wednesday makes its way through the East Coast.

Delays in Chicago and New York were significant early Friday morning. Those will likely ripple to other airports although at 6 a.m. DIA reported few delays.

In Chicago, 500 flights were canceled Thursday.

Officials caution flyers should check with their airlines if they plan to fly Friday afternoon to see if there are any delays.
