DENVER -- Sunday is expected to be the busiest day of holiday travel for the week at Denver International Airport; officials predicting more than 200,000 people will travel through DIA on Sunday and more than 2.5 million people total throughout the week.
"It’s more busy than I expected it to be.” Jarell Calderon of Minot, North Dakota said. "Right now, I'm on a 16-hour layover."
Jarell says he is an active air force member, who is visiting his family in Florida for the first time in more than a year and a half.
"[I'm] just excited after more than a year and a half just to get home,” Calderon said. "The last time I saw my family was after training."
