Roswell, Denver become ‘sister’ airports to promote business

0

The Roswell International Air Center has signed an agreement with the Denver International Airport to work together to promote business and air service growth.

The memorandum of understanding makes the two entities “sister airports” and creates a formal process for them to share industry best practices, according to a city of Roswell announcement Friday.

The two organizations will work together to promote business, tourism and air service growth and development.

The Denver International Airport (DEN), opened in 1995, is the fifth-busiest airport in the United States, with more than 61 million passengers a year, according to airport officials. It also is the primary economic engine for the state of Colorado, generating more than $26 billion annually for the region.

Roswell International Air Center staff are in the initial stages of developing commercial airline travel to a third city, with service to Phoenix and Dallas already established with American Airlines. Denver has been named as a possible new destination for an additional commercial airline service.

“This strategic relationship will bring benefit to the citizens of Roswell through added tourism and potential new air service to Denver,” said Mark Bleth, Roswell International Air Center manager and deputy director.

Denver and Roswell officials had their fun in their announcement with the extraterrestrial and supernatural hype involving both airfields.

According to the announcement, the Denver airport has been rumored to have underground tunnels with secret meeting rooms, with some saying that it is connected to a “new world order” or the home to a colony of lizard people.

“DEN is known for our world-class airport and our wild conspiracies,” said Chief Executive Officer Kim Day. “We are looking forward to exchange (of) ideas and plans with Roswell, a city very familiar with the unfamiliar.”

Roswell is known by many for a famous 1947 UFO incident and what many believe was a government cover-up regarding it.
