Eppley Airfield

The main airport in Nebraska is located three miles north of downtown Omaha. Eppley Airfield also provides air transport to neighboring states like Iowa, Missouri and Kansas. Just over four million passengers fly into the city every year exclusively on domestic flights. Airlines operating here include American, Delta, Frontier, Southwest, United, and US Airways. The busiest route runs to Denver, followed by Chicago, Dallas, Phoenix, Minneapolis, and Atlanta and about a dozen other major cities.

Both the North and South Terminal have six or seven eateries to choose from. All of them are fast food joints, with a couple of sit-down lounges. Basic gift shops and travel sundries can be found in both along with ATMs at the exits. Wi-Fi internet covers the entire airport.

Ground transportation is provided by a handful of taxis and shared shuttle vans. Many travelers opt for a rental car, with nine major companies on site including Alamo, Dollar and Hertz. The Ground Transportation Center is located on the lower level of the terminal. Both Interstate 29 and Interstate 80 are within minutes of Omaha’s airport ensuring quick and easy access to the city and regional towns in Nebraska and neighboring states.

Lincoln Airport

Nebraska’s second-busiest airport serves the capital of Lincoln. Located four miles north of downtown, the hub only handles flights between Denver, Chicago and Minneapolis on Delta and United. Since Omaha’s much larger airport is just an hour away, few travelers actually use this airport. But it is one of the most relaxed and quiet travel centers you will ever encounter.

The terminal has a food court to stave off hunger and a gift shop for last-minute travel needs. Use a taxi or shuttle van to get from the airport to your destination, or rent a car from one of the six companies on site including Avis, Hertz and National. Lincoln Airport is located just off Interstate 80 for easy access to most destinations in Nebraska.
