Final Approach at Denver International Airport

Location:  Denver, CO

Design Firm:  Galloway
Designer:  Kevin Nguyen

The Final Approach is the airport’s new waiting lot replacing the sparse dirt parking lot and porta potties. Now  travelers and those going to pick up friends arriving at DIA have a place grab a bite to eat, drink and fuel up their cars.

Final Approach features a food court with 4 restaurants, including Dunkin’ Donuts with a 24-7 drive through, a children’s area with iPads inlaid in the tables, a lounge area and outdoor seating. There are 8 large screens with flight arrival information and free Wi-Fi. The parking lot has 253 spaces.

This was an exciting project to work on with the designer and customer, Pacific Convenience & Fuels. Now the bright and colorful space is enjoyed by thousands of customers each week.


“Guests and travelers visiting the new food court and cell phone waiting lot will be greeted by a wide variety of high-quality food and exceptional service,” said John Sweeney, GM of restaurant operations for Buon Hospitality, a division of Pacific Convenience & Fuels. “We are extremely proud of the part we have been able to play in adding this amenity to visitors to DIA. These convenient and unique services will help to set expectations for other airports around the world.”
