After more than 20 years of calling our local airport DIA (Denver International Airport), the airport is changing the name on its logo to DEN.

"While our beloved community refers to us as DIA, across the world, our airline partners and others know us as DEN, our official airport code as do many of our passengers trying to book flights," said airport spokesman Heath Montgomery. "At home, you can still call us DIA or you can choose to call us DEN, whichever you prefer."

The new logo includes the airport's iconic tented roof, which was not included in the original logo introduced in 1990, before the airport was built.
