USA: The Innovia APM 300R car with an aluminium body is designed for an automated transport system of Denver International Airport, DEN.

The two km line with four stations between the terminal and three concourses was launched together with DEN in 1995.

In total, Alstom is to supply 26 such train cars worth $79 mln, ordered in 2018 from the acquired Bombardier Transportation. DEN expects to expand its fleet up to 41 trains, replacing 16 CX-100s produced by Bombardier in 1995. The deliveries had been delayed for two years due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The new fleet is to start being operational in summer.

DEN currently operates a dynamic schedule based on passenger volume. The airport systems can run simultaneously up to seven four-car trains during peak times, and will be able to run up to eight trains, when the additional train cars are delivered.
