Eppley Airfield Parking Structure Exp BY SCOTT R. FROEMMING E


PPLEY AIRFIELD IS THE COM- mercial airline transportation center for theGreaterOmaha (NE) / Council Bluffs (IA) and eastern Nebraska trade area, comprising approximately


1.2million people.With a service area that extends into six states, Eppley ranks 65th in the nation’s air- port rankings and is classified as a Medium Hub Commercial ServiceAirport by the FederalAvia- tionAdministration (FAA).


Since the 1990s, Omaha has experienced periods of dra-


matic growth due to a surge in the area’s agricultural industry. Trade and economic growth have positively affected its busi- ness climate, leading to an increase in travel to and from the city. Originating enplanements grew from 1.81 million in 2002 to 2.21million in 2007. Recent projections by airport consultant CoffmanAsso-


ciates Inc. envisioned enplanement growth eclipsing 3.3 mil- lion in the intermediate term, and continuing up to 4.5 million enplanements in its long-termplanning forecasts. As Eppley Airfield’s operations increased, the Omaha


Airport Authority developed an active “just do it” manage- ment philosophy.


As pre-recession growth rates showed that year-over-year


enplanements grew roughly 4.5% through 2007 and Eppley’s public parking capacity was 7,209 stalls with a maximum observed daytime occupancy of 85%, the airport authority knew it had a need for additional parking.
