Denver International Airport adds international flights to Fort McMurray, Tokyo Narita

DENVER - Denver International Airport is adding two non-stop international flights in the next four days.

On Friday, the first United Express flight from Fort McMurray Airport in Alberta, Canada will land at DIA.

Fort McMurray Airport serves the world’s largest single oil deposit. The airport expects to serve nearly 1 million passengers in 2012.

Monday, United Airlines will launch non-stop service between Denver and Tokyo-Narita Airport.

Denver Mayor Michael Hancock said last year that the new flight will generate more than $130 million in annual economic benefit to Colorado.

DIA has non-stop flights to Europe, Mexico, Canada and Costa Rica.
