Eagle County Airport – Easier, Closer and Often Comparable in Price
Eagle County Regional Airport (EGE) lies just 30 minutes west of Vail and this winter it offers nonstop flights from twelve US cities. A small airport, it has none of the hassles—trains to terminals, lines at security, long waits at baggage claim—of large international airports. You may think that flights to EGE would be more expensive, but often they’re comparable once you factor in the cost of shuttles or rental cars to Vail.
For example, Phoenix nonstop flights to EGE are available on American Airlines from $234.20 roundtrip!
Flying into Eagle also means bypassing bad weather that may hinder travel on I-70 and the often lengthy traffic jams that can arise on the weekends, thus allowing you to make the most of your vacation time. This season’s nonstop flight lineup includes: Atlanta, Chicago, Dallas/Fort Worth, Denver, Houston, Los Angeles, Miami, New York/JFK, Newark, Phoenix, Toronto and Washington DC. Look for these flights on Air Canada, American, Delta and United.
In summer, EGE offers non-stop flights from Dallas/Fort Worth, Denver, Houston and Los Angeles.
