    Love this airport still... I always experience smooth and efficient security, friendly airline agents and Amy at the bar always serves with smiles... Even on a hectic Friday it's a great airport!

    Trivia: You have landed in Nebraska, but will travel through Iowa as you drive out of the airport. It's an Iowa town (Carter Lake) stranded by a 1.25 mile shift of the river during an 1877 flood.

    Long layover or arrive early? Peace and quiet with plenty of room to relax on the 2nd floor between the two terminals. Free Wi-Fi.

    Clean and modern commuter (small) airport. Rental car pick-up and drop-off was just located across the airport (10-min walk from our terminal?).

    Great airport, good layout. Easy to get from TSA to all gates. Full TSA line which is great in the regional airports. Very clean and friendly staff.

    Eppley is a nice little airport, very clean with a few decent places for a quick bite. TSA is extremely fast and there are plenty of places to sit inside the gates.

    If you're a fan of Omaha Steaks Company, there is a booth right as you leave security where you can order anything you want to ship.

    Buy Omaha Steaks (on both sides of the airport before security check point) as a souvenier. Will stay frozen 8 hours or so. Great surprise for loved ones. Super tasty.

    Although you can show up like 15 minutes before your flight and still make it, some airlines won't let you check in if it's within 30 minutes of takeoff.

    Everything is great about Eppley except the airlines themselves..Delta is the worst, the rest are tied for second worst...but Eppley itself, awesome...

    Omaha steaks outside the terminal - great deals. And if you buy, they give you ice packs and a bag to carry your steaks!

    If you are getting a rental car it's a million miles to go pick it up, however, if you as they will bring it around for you!

    Don't wear anything with sparkles and for heaven sakes don't wear hand lotion! If you do this they will take you into a little room and really pat you down!

    The rental car return exit is thru the passenger pickup/drop off at terminal. Keep driving and take the second left into a small entrance. I know it's weird!

    If you somehow lost your id during your layover like I did, TSA will accept alternate proofs of id such as credit cards, prescription meds with address, other photo ids, MMS pic of expired ids, etc.

    Currently staying overnight and i havent been bothered by security. However if you stay overnight, prepare for said security to gravitate toward you.

    Small airport. It will take much longer for your bags to arrive at the baggage claim than it will for you to. So take your time.

    No fast track lane for SWA or through security. So for biz travelers, don't plan to cut it too close. Even so...they usually move things along fairly quickly.

    Security lines usually aren't very long. But make sure to eat before getting to the airport. The options are very limited once you are there, and it's not really cooked fresh either

    Always getting felt up, but at least it's always done with a smile. The TSA agents are always very friendly. It's the Midwestern charm.

    Use mobile check-in for your boarding passes and you'll fly right through. Otherwise, there aren't enough kiosks and the lines move slow. TSA agents are pretty friendly though!

    Print your boarding pass (or use a mobile pass) and bypass checkin. Security line usually takes 15 minutes tops--even when busy.

    If TSA tries to steal your shit (i.e. knives, liquids over 4 ounces) you can always mail it to yourself. The gift shop has postage and envelopes for just such an occasion

    Waited 40 mins for hotel shuttle, when only 8 mins drive Hilton Omaha on G Maps. No specific hotel pick up area. Winter time you either stay outside in the cold or inside & risk missing your shuttle.

    I firmly believe that you must poses an IQ below 80 to work for the TSA. Maybe it's a federal aid program for the incompetent. Especially the little blonde on the A side.
