Some big changes at Denver International Airport meant to help its two largest carriers.

The airport plans to reconfigure some gates and construct a 41.5 million dollar regional jet facility.

Under the deal, United Airlines will stop using six gates on Concourse A during the next year and move into five gates on Concourse B, where the airport's largest carrier operates most of its flights.

In exchange, DIA will build the jet facility for United on the east end of Concourse B.

The airport also will retire 110 million dollars in debt for the automated baggage system equipment that United stopped using last year.

Frontier Airlines will lease the newly open gates on Concourse A, which the airport says will allow for more growth without having to expand the concourse.
