DENVER — Southwest Airlines announced Wednesday that it plans to build a maintenance hangar at Denver International Airport.

The 130,000 square-foot hangar will cost nearly $100 million and be able to service up to three aircraft.

Construction on the facility, located on the north side of the airport, is expected to begin in the next few months and be completed by 2020.

The project will be the airline’s first hanger in Denver, Southwest’s fastest-growing station. United Airlines and Frontier both have facilities at DIA.
