Vail Daily letter: Lower ticket costs

I read with interest that United Airlines is adding a winter flight. I also read that the EGE Air Alliance is providing United with $385,000 of guaranteed funds for a flight from Houston. Wouldn’t it be nice if there were funds provided to subsidize passengers’ costs to fly into the valley during the summer so the costs per ticket would not exceed $1,000? My daughter and family would have spent over $4,000 to fly here from Chicago in July, instead opting for Denver at less than $300 per ticket. Let’s do something about lowering the costs of flying here during the summer so more of our family and friends can visit and enjoy our beautiful valley and not have to drive the two hours from Denver.
