Attention Denver flyers: United is going to tweak its DIA schedule next year

United Airlines will shake up its scheduling at Denver International Airport next year in order to provide more morning flights to both coasts.

The new schedule begins in February, United announced. The key change is the airline is getting rid of one of the 10 “banks” of flights it employs at Denver International Airport now. Banking is a practice carriers use to cluster flights at similar times to smooth out connections and reduce wait times. United is going from using 10 banks to nine at DIA.

The first bank of each day will begin at 7:50 a.m. and include more flights than before. The goal is to get more business travelers to more destinations earlier in the day, according to the airline.

The second bank of the day, beginning at 9:20 a.m., will feature only flights going west, while the third bank, staring at 10:50 a.m., will be flights headed east, the opposite of the existing schedule.

United averages about 400 flights out of DIA daily, officials say, and continues to expand offerings. This year, it added direct service to London among its new destinations.
