Vail Daily letter: Learn about Air Alliance
“EGE”: Perhaps you have heard those three letters floating around the community. What do they mean?
First, “EGE” stands for the Eagle County Regional Airport, a critical asset to our valley. Each and every year, our airport brings more than a third of our guests, who in turn spend an estimated $200 million throughout the Vail Valley.
And second, those letters represent the EGE Air Alliance, a nonprofit alliance of local governments and private businesses, committed to maintaining existing flights and to secure new flight opportunities to and from the Eagle County Regional Airport.
On behalf of the EGE Air Alliance board and members, we invite you to the Crazy Mountain Brewery in Edwards on Wednesday, starting at 4:15 p.m. While you’re enjoying a cold one, you can meet representatives of the Alliance and learn about our efforts.
Flight service to and from our airport is not a given; it’s something that has to be nurtured and grown. And we constantly face competition for guests from numerous resorts and their regional airports.
So please come out Wednesday evening, meet us and learn more about the EGE Air Alliance!
Michael S. Brown
President, EGE Air Alliance
