Vail, Colorado, has one primary airport to meet private jet travelers’ needs flying into or departing Vail. The Eagle-Vail Airport is open through most winter weather conditions.
Eagle-Vail County Airport or Eagle County Regional Airport (EGE) is a commercial facility with one fixed-base operator (FBOs) for private jet passengers. West of downtown Vail, the airport has climate-controlled hangar space, 24-hour security, rental cars, and ground transportation services.
Rifle Airport or Rifle Garfield County Airport is in Rifle, Colorado, forty-six miles from Eagle, and eighty-eight miles from Vail. At a lower altitude than Eagle, this airport is open during adverse weather higher up.
Vail-Eagle Airport is thirty-eight miles from the world-class mountains in Vail’s downtown. Freeway access is easy to the world-class ski and snowboard slopes of Vail. The greater Vail Valley region contains many five-star hotels, fine dining restaurants, and golf courses.
The Vail-Eagle airport or the Eagle-Vail Airport is in Eagle County and serves the Vail and Beaver Creek resorts. The long single runway of 9,000 feet is rated for large jets and heavy aircraft. Eagle is rated one of the U.S.’s most extreme airports due to Eagle’s elevation, weather changes, mountain terrain, and challenging flight plans. All winter long, Eagle (EGE) is the second-most active airport in Colorado. With a longer runway than nearby Aspen Airport, EGE allows larger aircraft for takeoff and landing.
West of Eagle is the Rifle Airport (RIL), and like EGE, this airport’s movements are predominantly private jets. They also have one FBO, Atlantic Aviation. RIL is the third busiest winter general aviation airport after Eagle. Rifle is at a lower elevation than both Eagle and Vail, allowing air traffic during weather periods.
