    Breathe That Clean Mountain Air This Summer and Fall With Great Low Fares to Vail, Colorado, on American Airlines

    Vail, Colo., is rightly known as a premier winter destination. But it's pretty special all other times of the year, too. And right now, American Airlines is offering some great low fares to Vail for summer and fall travel.

    American has put its Vail service on sale for travel from mid-June through mid-November from select U.S. destinations, offering vacationers a chance to sample some of the best that Colorado has to offer during two different seasons.

    If you love the outdoors -- hiking, biking, fishing, river rafting, off- road four wheeling, golf, spectacular scenery, quaint streets, mild temperatures and fresh air -- then you'll love Vail. And even if the indoors is more your style, you won't be disappointed in Vail's wonderful restaurants and excellent accommodations, its soothing spas and its fashionable boutiques. Lovers of the arts will also enjoy the area's art galleries, along with Vail's free outdoor concerts and its summer art, music and dance festivals.

    American offers daily nonstop service to Vail's Eagle County Airport from Dallas/Fort Worth (DFW), with convenient connecting service available via DFW from dozens of other cities across the United States.

    Great destination. Great fares. Convenient flights. Vail and American Airlines have it all this summer and fall.
