Situated in the heart of the Rocky Mountains, Vail’s Eagle County Airport offers a scenic backdrop for those traveling into the small airfield. The airport only sees a few flights per day from major US carriers, such as American, United, and Delta. However, the airport also sees plenty of general aviation traffic.
The airfield is 6,547 ft. above sea level and is a single runway operation. Runway 7/25 is 9,000 ft. long after being repaved and lengthened during a project in 2008. Being a popular ski and tourist destination, the airport is the second busiest in the state of Colorado after Denver International Airport.
