Denver International Airport (DEN) serves over 64 million passengers per year, making it the fifth-busiest airport in the U.S.

Despite the amount of passenger traffic that passes through the airport, there are just 6 airport lounges, as the airport is not a major international gateway. Still, eligible premium passengers or elite frequent flyers traveling on Oneworld or Star Alliance flights will have access to the Admirals Club and United Clubs.

For information on getting into airport lounges around the world, see our post on the best credit cards for accessing airport lounges.

Connecting Between Terminals for Lounge Access

Jeppesen Terminal and Concourses A, B, and C are connected via the Automatic Guideway Transit System (AGTS). This underground train operates inside the secure area so that passengers can easily connect between flights without needing to reclear security.

A station is located on level B of each concourse, with the departure gates on the upper levels. The maximum journey time is 6 minutes, so if you’re using a lounge in a different concourse to your departure, connecting won’t take too long.

Final Thoughts

If you don’t qualify for access through a premium cabin or with frequent flyer status, you’ll still be able to purchase a lounge day pass if you’re traveling on a Oneworld or Star Alliance flight. Unless you’ve got an eligible credit card for access, any other passengers (excluding military) will be out of luck, as Denver doesn’t have any open-access lounges.

Thankfully, Denver has some great restaurants, shopping, and fast Wi-Fi should you find yourself looking to pass the time in the general waiting areas. If you’re looking to use a lounge in a different concourse to your departure, you’re able to move around easily using the underground train. Unless you’re arriving on an international flight, or need to collect checked luggage in between flights, you should be able to stay inside the secure area.
