Few problems for Denver fliers, but drivers warned

DENVER — Air travelers found few difficulties today as a busy but calm Denver airport entered its heaviest travel week in history, but drivers faced bigger problems.

The western half of the state was under a blizzard warning, with forecasters warning of whiteout conditions and urging motorists to keep extra blankets and clothing in the car in case they get stranded.

At Denver International Airport, which expected nearly 162,000 travelers to pass through on Wednesday, security lines were busy but brisk.

A few protesters stood near baggage claim to hand out leaflets protesting the Transportation Security Administration’s body scanners and pat-downs, but the protesters reported lukewarm interest from busy travelers heading to their gates.
