Tenant special events requests

Online form streamlines notification process for tenants
TUESDAY, JUNE 28, 2016 | AIRPORT STAFF

Centennial Airport is home to many spectacular events, both public and private—some for fun, and some for some pretty awesome charity causes. While we don't need to be invited, we do need to work closely with you to ensure the safety, security and efficient operation of the airport continues while your guests and clients enjoy themselves. To help streamline things, we've developed this online special event request form that works as, both, a checklist and a notification letter. Event planners working directly with Centennial Airport tenants should complete this form at least 30 days prior to the event.

To learn more or to access the form, visit the Special Events Request to Deviate from Normal Operations.
