Holiday Travel Update

A fifth runway reopened at the beleaguered Denver International Airport today as airlines struggle to get thousands of passengers out of town.

A two-day blizzard brought travel to a standstill in Denver just before Christmas.

The airport reopened yesterday.

United Airlines -- the busiest carrier at Denver International -- plans to operate a full schedule of 900 departures and arrivals Saturday.

United spokeswoman Robin Urbanski says flights are running close to on schedule.

The airport expects to have all six runways cleared by tomorrow but it isn't clear when the backlog of passengers will be cleared out.

But some travelers have given up on getting out because airlines are running almost at full capacity with little room for the passengers stranded by the storm.
