July 19, 2009 — As the Eagle County Regional Airport (EGE) prepares for its reopening Sept. 1, the total number of seats reserved for fall travel has exceeded the number reserved in the fall 2008 by 6.2 percent.
"The 2008 booking curve was flat until the end of July, so the next several weeks will provide more insight for the season," said Kent Myers, director of the EGE Air Alliance.
The news is promising as EGE prepares to reopen after a summer of improvements, including milling and resurfacing the eastern half of the runway and a complete restoration of the western
half. The runway is also being extended to 9,000 feet.
The airport will reopen with three daily flights from Denver
International Airport (DEN) on United Airlines. American Airlines
flights to and from Dallas Fort Worth International Airport (DFW) will start on Sept. 2. Service will continue uninterrupted through the winter season.
EGE Air Alliance is a non-profit organization established in 2003 to grow and improve the quality and volume of air service to the Eagle County Regional Airport during the summer and fall seasons.
The EGE Air Alliance is made up of a variety of Vail Valley
businesses, including banks, resorts, real estate companies and other local stakeholders.
