“This is great news for our community, as our airlines partners continue to build their year-round service at the Eagle County Regional Airport,” said David Reid, Director of Aviation. “It is a testament to our growing and dynamic community, and our airline partners’ commitment to serve it. It is likely we can expect this trend of additional summer service to continue if the community utilizes this new service.”
“Eagle County Regional Airport is a vital component of our community and our local economy,” said Chris Romer, President and CEO of Vail Valley Partnership. “Expanded service to Dallas and new service to the hub markets of Chicago and Atlanta during the summer season not only benefits our tourism economy, but it is a huge benefit to our local residents. EGE is our community’s airport, and it has never been as accessible to our residents as it will be this summer. We are excited to welcome our airline partners, second homeowners, and visitors from these markets and beyond. And we encourage our local community to FlyVail.”
