need advice- which airport to fly in and out of?

Hi all- i have a last minute wristband, so trying to buy tickets now. I’m not familiar with the area. Omaha sounds like the place to fly into, but what is the place to fly out of?

I also need a ride/carpool/car share to and from these airports- HELP please?
Thank you! Thank you!

Quad Cities International Airport (MLI) is probably the nearest big airport (“big” being relative) near Keokuk. But there are a couple smaller ones that are closer, probably with much fewer destinations they offer. Have a look at Google Maps: https://www.google.com/maps/search/airports+near+Keokuk,+IA

Chicago airports are an option (O’Hare and Midway) if you can catch a ride to Chicago (there should be plenty of people heading that way). Other options are Cedar Rapids (CID) and St. Louis.

I would call the Keokuk committee, or send an email, and ask them what airport people in that town fly out of when they go somewhere. Depends a bit where you are headed also.

I’ve flown out of Burlington to Chicago twice, but that was years ago, 1992 and 1997.

I really don’t think you should bother the Keokuk committee with this question – it is getting close to RAGBRAI and we can figure some things out.

Fly in at Omaha and you can get a shuttle or Uber to the start. Fly out of Moline and youll have to figure out a ride to the airport as its a few hours. Pork Bellys and other charters have shuttles.

Not that big of a question, What’s the airport people who live in Keokuk use?” It will be two weeks from tomorrow until we get to Keokuk. Or call the chamber or a hotel and ask. Looking at the map, Quincy, IL seems like an option.
