Vail Valley Jet Center at Eagle County Regional Airport (EGE), Colo., now has customs, immigration and agricultural inspection services available on site and has upgraded its passenger terminal with wireless Internet access. The FBO has also added scheduled and as-needed maintenance capability, now serving as host to a satellite shop operated by Denver Centennial Airport-based Haggan Aviation. Vail Valley is developing plans for a 30,000- to 40,000-sq-ft hangar, shop and office complex. Vail Valley Jet Center president Bryan Burns estimates that, up to now, about 350 international flights arrive at EGE annually, each having been forced to stop elsewhere first to clear customs.
