New flight from Miami to Eagle County starts in June

Contact: Airport Administration, 970-328-2680

The EGE Air Alliance announces today a new flight for the summer season from Miami International Airport (MIA) into Eagle County Regional Airport (EGE) located in Gypsum, Colorado.  The flight is non-stop on the inbound, with one-stop in Denver on the outbound and will operate weekly on Saturdays from June 12 until August 21, 2010. 

The new service from Miami represents a growth market both for business to the Vail Valley from Florida and connecting Latin American and South American markets.  Miami and South Florida also are great outbound destination markets from the Vail Valley for locals in the summer season.

“We are pleased to offer this non-stop flight from Miami to the Vail Valley from American Airlines,” said Kent Myers, President of Airplanners LLC, who directs the air service programs for the EGE Air Alliance.  “This new flight allows our guests from Florida and Latin America to escape the heat and enjoy our temperate mountain summers.” 

The flight from Miami is indicative of the EGE Air Alliance’s continued dedication to expanding air service into the Vail Valley during the summer months.  The new service from Miami represents a growth market for business to the Vail Valley from Florida as well as connecting Latin American and South American markets to the Valley.  Miami and South Florida are also popular outbound destination markets for locals from the Vail Valley in the summer season. 

Myers attributes the success of the program to the Eagle County Commissioners, town governments, Beaver Creek Company and private businesses that support the program.  “Without the support of these organizations, air service to the EGE Airport would not be what it is today,” Myers explains.

The EGE Airport currently is served in the summer months with three daily flights from Denver International Airport (DEN) on United Airlines and a daily 757 flight to and from Dallas Fort Worth International Airport (DFW) on American Airlines from June 10 through Sept. 29.  For more information, please visit www.flyvail.com  or www.aa.com.
