Eppley Airfield (IATA: OMA, ICAO: KOMA, FAA LID: OMA) is a medium hub airport three miles northeast of Omaha, Nebraska, in Douglas County, Nebraska, United States. It is by far the largest airport in Nebraska, serving ten times more passengers than all other Nebraska airports combined, and is named for Eugene C. Eppley, the Eppley Hotel magnate of Omaha, from whose estate $1.0 million was used to convert Omaha Municipal Airport into a jetport in 1959/1960.
The airport occupies 2,650 acres (1,070 ha) and handles about 70-75 airline flights per day to 20 daily and 3 seasonal non-stop destinations.
