American Airlines Unveils Vail Summer Flights

Vail may be best known for outstanding winter skiing, but summer travelers
can also experience the beauty—and cool temperatures—of Colorado
with nonstop service to Vail/Eagle County Regional Airport starting next
June on American Airlines.

From June 17 through Sept. 12, 2004, American Airlines will offer daily
nonstop service between Dallas/Fort Worth and Vail/Eagle County Regional
Airport (EGE).
“American has been flying to Vail in the winter for years, and we`re happy
to bring the beauty and fun of Vail Valley to our customers during the
summer, too,” said American spokesman Tim Kincaid. “The best part:
customers can get to Vail from just about anywhere in the world, thanks to
American`s huge global network.”
“This will be the second summer season that American Airlines has served
Vail and Eagle County,” said Kent Myers of Airplanners. “Last summer was
very successful for the community and the airport. We look forward to
expanding our relationship with American Airlines in the future. They are
a great partner.”
Dallas/Forth Worth-Vail summer service will be flown on American`s Boeing
757 aircraft, featuring 22 First-Class and 166 Coach-Class seats. Flights
operate as follows:
— DFW-EGE Departs 3:45 p.m. (CDT) Arrives 4:54 p.m. (MDT)
  — EGE-DFW Departs 7:58 a.m. (MDT) Arrives 11:11 a.m. (CDT)
