Denver Airport is a Regional Transportation District (RTD) commuter rail station on the A Line in Denver, Colorado, serving the Denver International Airport. The A Line begins at the airport and travels west to Union Station in Downtown Denver via six intermediate stops.

The Denver Airport station is located at the south end of the DIA Jeppesen Terminal; the station includes services like a transit customer service desk, baggage checks, airport check-in kiosks, flight information screens, and a TSA airport security checkpoint.[1] The station is also integrated into a 519-room Westin hotel and convention space, built atop the station, that opened on November 25, 2015.[2]

The two tracks and island platform at Denver Airport station are not aligned in the middle of the right-of-way to accommodate future expansion.[3]

The station opened along with the rest of the A Line on April 22, 2016.[4]
