Whether you are rushing over for a business meeting or are heading over for some mountain air in the mile high city, the route from Chicago (CHI) to Denver (DEN) has a lot to offer. The flight time is usually around 3 hours, covering around 920 miles. Airlines offering a direct flight include Spirit, United, American, Frontier, US Airways and Southwest.
Fortunately, popular flight routes like these are not short of cheap tickets. This one is no different. To purchase a low cost flight to Denver though, it is important to compare prices and availability online. Taking hand luggage only, flexibility in the dates of travel, booking during the off-peak season and buying an air ticket well in advance of travel will greatly help to keep prices down.
Denver has a diverse array of attractions drawing travelers to its streets such as a popular zoo and beautiful botanical gardens. What is even better is that they are all easily reached upon landing. The airport has a Ground Transportation counter (located in the central area on level 5 of the Jeppesen terminal) to advise travelers on the manifold bus, commuter shuttles and taxi services on offer. Hotel shuttles are also provided as a courtesy by most of the hotels within the immediate vicinity of the airport.
