The service center, called "Final Approach," has several food options, fuel, free Wi-Fi and arrival and departure boards — like those in the terminal — where local residents can monitor flight updates on their arriving friends or family members.
"This is a new bar we've set for all cellphone lots in the country," said Kim Day, DIA's manager of aviation. "This is a new, completely unique idea."
Local residents — who have spent far too many hours listening to the wind whip their cars, wondering if a trip to the creaky set of portable toilets was worth it — now have some options.
The facility's food choices include a Subway restaurant, Baja Fresh Mexican Grill, Zpizza and Dunkin' Donuts.
