  • Jeff Slobotski

    Welcome to Omaha! Home of Big Omaha!
  • Catherine Juon

    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.
  • Scott Bishop

    Try the full body scan. The dangerous levels of radiation provide a friendly sucker punch to healthy cells.
  • El Presidente

    Even when busy, getting through check in and security is a breeze. Plan on only being an hour early ever!
  • Nathan Wright

    Welcome to Eppley, home of the cleanest airport bathrooms in the country.
  • bob G

    Parked the car and at the gate in under 10 minutes.!
  • Ryan Arlauskas

    Be nice to all the airline agents, its not our fault flights cancel and delay, all agents will be more likely to help you if you treat them in a respectful manor
  • Nan

    Eat before security here, options are sparse in the B concourse
  • Al Adden

    Don't pack sex toys in your bag when traveling with your parents. t s a will find them
  • Paul Jarrett

    Do anything possible to avoid Chicago O'Hare

    Fun fact: up in the air featuring George Clooney was partially filmed here!
  • Tracee Wellik

    it literally took me ten minutes max to from when I was dropped off to when I sat down at my gate.
  • Dafna Michaelson

    Small manageable airport. Made it from car rental return through security to gate in four minutes. :-)
  • Benjamin B

    TSA is extremely self-important and ridiculous at OMA, similar to mall cops and meter maids.
  • Steven ginsberg

    Get a drink, you might be here a while.
  • Cathy Mutz

    Stop complaining and take off your shoes...
  • Timothy Kephart

    Thanks to Google there is free wifi through the holiday season.
  • Christine Elizabeth

    NO traffic & TWO officers came at the car after less than 2 min saying bye? Seriously? I don't feel safe, I feel harassed. Don't stop your car in the drop off lane...
  • Steven Soto

    Free internet is available, but you have to look at a commerical video first
  • Danny Jackson

    Takes about an hour max go get through the airport
  • Emily Cole

    This place needs a Starbucks.
  • Steven ginsberg

    Go see Kracky McGee!
  • Rob

    If you're looking to get on an airplane, you've come to the right place! They are all over this joint.
  • Deena Schares

    Really should only have to be here 45 min-1 hr before your flight. It's really fast from drop off to gate. Also get food beforehand because there is really no good places to eat in here
  • Union Pacific Jobs

    Welcome to Omaha, and enjoy one of the fastest security lines in the country!

    Welcome to Omaha - home of the College World Series! In between games, stop by the new Nike Fieldhouse at 1502 Mike Fahey Street for the ultimate Nike Baseball experience.
  • Kevin Fuller

    If you need a nap, I recommend behind the chairs upstairs before going through security.
  • Amanda Funk

    Literally took me 10-15 min curbside to gate! Clean airport!
  • Mike Brady

    Best airport I have ever been to in a city fast security lines and clean terminals.
  • Cris Hay-Merchant

    Such an easy airport to get in and out of.
  • Cassy L.

    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.
  • Drew Frey

    Just don't eat here.
  • Lindsay Koehler

    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.
  • LC

    Welcome to Omaha! Since you're so close to Iowa why not keep on going? Go Hawkeyes!!!!
  • Dennis Frantzen

    Stay away from the public restrooms, a Mr. Fuller propositions all those that enter the last stall on the left.
  • Mike Billinger

    Get a rice krispy treat from simply scrumptious. You will not regret it.
  • Michelle Vu

    Don't forget a good book. There's a really nice bookstore (Hudson Booksellers) on the second floor with a great selection.
  • Brock Holman

    Print a coupon from the airport website before your trip and park in South Longterm parking for $4.25/day. Less than 30 minutes from shuttle to gate!
  • Chris Jackson

    The happiest and saddest place to be.
  • Bill B.

    In town and looking for a unique and first class moviegoing experience? Check out Aksarben Cinema. 67th & Center
  • Jeff Luft

    Note to self... Stop donating a tube a tooth paste to security every time I get on a plane !
  • Aaron Andersen

    Don't eat here if you can avoid it. Extremely overpriced.
  • Jessica Ellis

    Pug! Good job Omaha steaks advertising:)
  • John Reggio

    Always flattering to get carded at the airport bar when you're 41. At least it's a direct to Newark. (If only they were on time once in a while.)
  • Steve Sanda

    Eppley Airport: two people checked in here. All other airports everywhere else: 100+ and "swarming"
  • Danny Hoyt

    If I would have really adopted foursquare a few years I think I'd be close to the mayor of this joint. Great people watching!
  • Shawntel Clark

    Don't underestimate at OMA airport you need to be there early and allow yourself plenty of time to check in and get thru security...
  • Peter f

    Damn bro there be bitches here like no other, gonna get my drank on and go mac on some international hotties. Holla
  • Briana Ballew

    Blimpies has been added to the food selection before the security check! YUMMY Sub Sandwiches!
  • Dan Gibson

    Cried as I watched 4 energy drinks get trashed by security. Buy your energy fix AFTER security check, ya dummy.
  • Michael Cox

    Delta, Continental and United now offer mobile boarding passes for Flights out of Omaha. Save paper and look cool in the process.
  • Mark H

    Lisa P never brushes her teeth
  • Jenna Spurlin

    Parking, check-in, security, and a coffee right into my plane within 20 minutes.
  • Airport Parking Connection

    Get the discounted rates online at airportparkingconnection.com, use code "TWITTER" for an extra 10% off a parking reservation!
  • Jenny Martin

    Security is a breeze. Even with a small line, it's less than 10 minutes from curbside to gate. No need to get here early!
  • Christopher Martin

    Try the macho nacho at kracky mcgees next to gate A3.
  • Justin Kadis

    Get food before security. Options after are relatively nonexistent.
  • Jill B

    Scooters has pretzels and hummus! So delicious if you need a yummy snack. :). Super easy to get through security Sunday afternoon also.
  • Kimber B.

    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!
  • @mattBgomez

    Hope you are here for #edcampOmaha If so make sure and ask for the @j_allen Man Van

    Just remember to be nice when getting a rental car you might get a free upgrade don't be mad at us if you had a shitty flight
  • Tracy M.

    Fly Southwest -- ppl are friendly, helpful and super speedy.
  • Alan Tipp

    Welcome to... "Somewhere in middle America. I Think you better turn your ticket in, and get your money back at the door, OMAHA! - Counting Crowes
  • Amy Lovejoy

    FREE Wi-Fi!!
  • Danielle Prawdzik

    Not much to do here...
  • Frank Lizzadro

    Spent a day here the last three hours
  • mk blum

    Slowest security line ever. Pick it up Oma. Love this airport otherwise
  • Amy B.

    Before going through security you have to go to the cookie stand downstairs they have the best rice krispy treats.
  • Linda Gardels

    There IS food at the gates here, but no gourmet fare. Scooters at Gates 11-20.
  • Greg Meyer

    Always fast!
  • Bill Clark

    There is no good food here. Buy something and bring it to the airport.
  • Jason Mitton

    Crazy conservative liquor policy.
  • Tammy Hendrickson

    Free jump start if your vehicle won't start, :( and a friendly face to jump it for you :) Thanks
  • Brandie Carlson

    Ahhh... The good life! Go Huskers!
  • ???

    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?).
  • Anna Couch-Hiykel

    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!
  • Cora Wu

    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.
  • It's me Jenny

    Nothing. Fun to do here boring .,
  • Joe Frost

    Bad coffee but good steaks.
  • Ben Andes

    TSA here is the slowest of any airport I've been to. O'Hare has nothing on the backup you get here with their single body scanner.
  • Cora Wu

    There is nothing to do at this airport except maybe order some steaks for delivery. Plan your arrival accordingly and dont spend more time than you need to!!
  • Arod

    Not much to it but you don't need to ever be here early so not entertainment needed
  • Todd Shanks

    Truly one of the worst security check points in the world.
  • Omahype

    Try the EAMES SEATING
  • Darren Keen

    The body scanner made my penis rot and fall off...
  • Coats

    One of the best airports to fly in and out of anywhere. Always clean & efficient.
  • Damon

    Security sucks 1 line no Priority passing and 10 TSA agents hangin out..
  • Jim Mackay

    Draft beer is $7.69 after security. Wow.
  • Jeff Coons

    Beware - the TSA here is particularly slow.
  • Jeremy Kruse

    Security is a joke, it's only quick if you're white and dressed like an idiot. Otherwise get in line for the full body scan.
  • Jacob Thiele

    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
  • Andrea Giantelli

    Be sure to check your flight status and NEVER book the continental 420 PM flight! It always cancels!!!
  • Brett Paynter

    Rent from avis! Much more friendly than enterprise
  • Kimber B.

    My experience-- OMA is one of the best/easiest airports to travel through! Security is efficient, evening bartender is great, staff friendly!
  • Joe Michel

    Long flight :(
  • Evan[Bu]

    Des Moines International Airport > Omaha Eppley Airfield
  • Lisa Wilmes

    Mark is stinky
  • Brian Kruse

    Parking is always a problem. Make sure you arrive at least an hour to an hour and a half before your flight is scheduled to leave. Security is slow.
  • Michael Crowley

    I travel through airport security, through major hubs, 40+ times/year. Ive only been full body scanned here, in Omaha, 5x now...
  • Chuck Salewsky

    Oh my God I am back in Omaha again! What is a Buddy to do.
  • Kate

    Use Budget's parking and print a coupon before you go: http://www.executivetravel.com/resource_library/free_parking.html
  • Kevin Sin City Examiner

    DO NOT buy the Godfathers mini-pizzas for $6.00. They are hard as the counters!
  • Alex Peh

    Free wifi!
  • Raymon Rivera

    Easiest airport to go through. Got here about half an hour early and had to drop off rental car but still made it through security with 15 min. To spare
  • Justin Yang

    Nicest TSA agents & closest rental car facility.
  • Paul Kardous

    Omaha is very friendly, but oddly the people at the airport aren't.
  • Philip

    This place is great ! Bathrooms, a roof, doors ! EVERYTHING !!
  • Colin Herr

    The Macho Nachos are the best value on the menu. 6 bucks!
  • Chad Reynoldson

    80 minutes from 84th and Pioneers in Lincoln through security at OMA at 6am. Nice!
  • Robert Lamb

    Eat before passing security. Choices after security are scary dreadful.
  • Jacob Thiele

    If you're flying united make sure you check in at least 30 mins before the flight or they'll totally kick you off! Even if you're exactly 30 mins before!
  • leslie c.

    Loving the free wifi, but please get me home. It is freezing- brrrrr
  • Paul Amlin

    Better food options at food court near Gate A before security.
  • Cagney Shattuck

    Yahoooo for precheck!! :-)
  • Amy Yackel

    Don't fly American Airlines ugh. Three times with Delta amazing, and I should have stuck with them.
  • Jess ?

    Add enough time for security -- there's no priority lane for us frequent travelers...
  • Luke Shepherd

    Plenty of food/drink options in Concourse B. Scooters, Godfathers Pizza, and pub. P
  • Luke Shepherd

    Grumpy TSA agents are grumpy.
  • Brian Smith

    Don't expect to be productive while you're here. While they have free Internet, it's terrible.
  • Lori McClintock

    Free WiFi!
  • Dink Cash

    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!
  • Galley Sarai

    "I Can Fly" - Love it :)
  • Luis Dominguez

    Free wifi, the way it should be on every airport.
  • Roger J

    Made an Emergency landing here after a cabin depressurization. Hope they can fix 737s.
  • Marc Shoemaker

    Some of the best TSA agents I've seen.
  • Kate Murphy

    Baggage claim soooooo slow!
  • Todd Shanks

    Probably the worst airport...from checkin to security and the lack of anything in the gate area...avoid Omaha.
  • P L

    Food options are generally pretty poor so best to grab a bite beforehand.
  • Chad Chiesa

    Don't plan on getting anything to eat outside of security on a Saturday evening. It's a ghost town.
  • Sarah

    The wireless is not free. $5 for an hour.
  • Debbie Wiens

    Skinny caramel latte at Scooters is yummy!
  • Noah Barnes

    Not a lot of options once your past security ... Eat first :p
  • Terri Carbaugh

    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!
  • Carol Moore

    Compared to DTW Detroit, this place is a cool breeze.
  • Edgar Reyes

    @ The North food court before entering the gates get a Philly cheese. It's pretty delicious!
  • James Menezes

    Free Wifi here is just terrible... Can see why they have payment options.
  • Brady Cox

    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.
  • Jacob Thiele

    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.
  • Sheldon Drake

    only airport i know where arriving 30 minutes before your flight will be suffice.!
  • Daniel Tewfik

    OMAHA! While you're waiting for your flight attendant to tell you to put your mobile device away, read this infographic to explain why you have to:
  • Brian G.

    Southwest airlines flights are at far end of terminal, do not park right away but drive in halfway
  • Chelsea

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

    Scooters Coffee is the BEST in Omaha...grab a cup o Scooterdoodle before flight and you will take on the day :)
  • Samar Elatta

    Lately it seems delta always has delays
  • Alexia Lorch

    If you are waiting for your southwest flight you should try and score one of the nice chairs to relax in.
  • Karim M

    There is literally nothing to eat here after 11 not even a vending machine
  • Scott

    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.
  • Chad Mardesen

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

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

    Glad to see the BVU poster everytime I'm here
  • gladys vazquez

    Best airport ever!
  • Daniel Parrotta

    Kracky McGees near A4 -> Great food, good prices, friendly staff (try the carrot cake).
  • Steve Watkins

    Security in the morning is woefully slow. Watch out!

  • James Cleaver

    Women, don't wear all your Bling-bling knowing its all got to come off to go throug the security scanners....
  • Kathryn Hardin

    Only at the Omaha airport would they make a loud speaker announcement saying someone forgot their watch at security...
  • Jeff Ziemer

    Don't wear boots when you fly...slip on shoes are best...
  • Jaim Foster

    Grab your Starbucks before arriving at the airport.
  • Trevor Strong

    United overbooked our flight by 14 people. Bumped off flight. Compensation is pathetic. Avoid United at all costs.
  • Dave Blankenship

    Mmm - Goose Island Honker's Ale available at The Hanger restaurant outside terminal A.
  • Josh Goossen

    Goto my website www.gpstolife.info
  • Brandon Johnson

    Slowest connection speed I have ever experienced be prepared to not use the net on your phone
  • Justin Obrien

    Get some good before security, your choices are limited after TSA...
  • Laura Kopp

    If you're hungry before security or in terminal B, you'll be eating fast food
  • Laura Richardson

    WiFi is free, but only after you watch a 30 second ad. Hey, at least it's free though!
  • Mark H

    Lisa t p makes children cry and then laughs about it

    Food is also sparse in A concourse, but drinks are strong.
  • Chris Winfield-Blum

    Security great but food after check in is crap... Eat b4 checkin
