Traveling by shuttles to downtown Omaha
Omaha is a lot of things, but forgettable isn’t one of them. Located in the heart of the Midwest and on the edge of the beautiful Missouri River, Omaha is bursting with life as much as it is with nature. With amazing attractions like the Henry Doorly Zoo and the annual College World Series, it’s no wonder why tourism is such a huge part of Omaha’s economy.
The Eppley Airfield is very famous for its easy in and easy out departures and arrivals system. This convenience has been very beneficial for passengers and they leave amazing reviews. Airports are usually very large scale and the throng of people coming in an out always makes it very difficult to navigate your way with ease. However, this easy arrival and departure system has been very helpful for people; especially when you are already tired or anxious about a flight.
One of the best things about this airport is that you can easily find information on places you plan to visit if you are a tourist. The Omaha Convention and Visitors Bureau has two operating Visitor Information Desks at the airport. Therefore, you can easily get your Omaha Visitors Guide before you kick off your vacation.
The small but convenient size of the Eppley Airfield saves you from the hustle and bustle of a traditional United States airport. Thus, it is very easy to quickly find your way into the main city or catch your flight within a small amount of time.
