DENVER (AP) -- Denver International Airport hasn't decided whether to go ahead with a 10-gate, $280 million expansion because of uncertainty in the airline industry.
Spokesman Chuck Cannon says the airport is waiting to see the extent of the airlines' fall cutbacks before making a decision.
Denver-based Frontier Airlines, which filed for bankruptcy protection in April, has returned five gates to the airport, removing some of the pressure to expand.
Despite high ticket prices and a troubled economy, Denver's passenger traffic has grown this year.
In July, the airport's monthly passenger count exceeded 5 million for the first time.
