Eagle County Regional Airport (Vail/Eagle Airport or the Eagle Vail Airport) is four miles (6 km) west of Eagle, Colorado. The airport serves its namesake Eagle County, which includes visitors to the nearby Vail and Beaver Creek ski resorts. It covers and has one runway. The History Channel rated Eagle County Regional Airport as #8 on its list of Most Extreme Airports in July 2010 due to the elevation, weather variability, an approach through mountainous terrain and challenging departure procedures. In 2008–2009, the Airport completed a runway repaving and extension project, increasing the runway length to 9,000 feet.
The Airport is largely seasonal, with the greatest number of scheduled flights operating during the winter months. During the ski season, EGE is the second busiest airport in Colorado after Denver International Airport. Eagle serves as a great alternative to Denver for skiers at major resorts of Vail, Beaver Creek, Copper Mountain, Keystone, and Breckenridge. Due to the abundance of flights into EGE and the ability to accept larger aircraft than Aspen, during the ski season, a number of passengers fly to EGE rather than trying to fly to Aspen. Operations to the airport during the summer months have become popular with tourists, with United Express and American Airlines offering service year round. The airport is popular with private aircraft operators and has one of the top rated fixed-base operators in the country, the Vail Valley Jet Center. Due to the variety of private and commercial aircraft, CNN rated EGE as one of the world's top places to spot aircraft. * Source: Wikipedia
