If you would like to see which airlines fly into Lincoln and Omaha, here are a couple of links that will help you.

Additionally, here are a couple of travel sites that can give you discounted pricing on flights:

If you are flying into Lincoln, Embassy Suites offers a free shuttle that runs every half hour. However, if you call them at 402-474-1111 they will send the shuttle as soon as you land.

Those flying into Omaha and not renting a car may consider using a shuttle service.There are two services that provide shuttle service between Omaha and Lincoln.

The service that we had available in the past, which is now under new ownership, is OMALiNK. Reservations must be made at least 48 hours prior to arrival or departure. The cost for OMALiNK is $60 one way, and $100 round trip. To establish your reservation, go online to www.omalink.com and mention the special pricing in your comments. Additionally, you can call for reservations at 402-475-LiNK (5465) and mention this deal.

A new service this year is Leisure Limousine & Sedan. A roundtrip is $110 plus driver gratuity, one-way would be $55. When you book your reservations, you can use the following Promo Code: TABS32018

Also, if three passengers are traveling together and want to use the sedan service it would be $135/one way, plus driver gratuity (which would be $45/per person) or if six passengers are traveling together and want to use our SUV service it would be $165/one way, plus driver gratuity (which would be $27.50/per person). These are just a couple of different options to consider!

To book your reservations, you can use their website at leisurelimoservices.com, or call them at 402-476-8132.
