People love flying out of CID!

The Eastern Iowa Airport announced they crushed their annual passenger record in 2018...with more than 1.2 million people choosing to fly out of Cedar Rapids. That's 5.4 percent more than the previous record set in 2017.

This comes as no surprise to me, I love flying out of CID! I have family in Las Vegas and Arizona, so I take advantage of CID's low fares with Allegiant and Frontier. It's super convenient and very affordable, two things that are very important to all of us!

I also like how easy is it to get in and out of the airport here in Cedar Rapids. Parking is great, security moves quickly and the staff does a great job communicating with the passengers. I could tell you some horror stories of other airports that I've had issues with over the years. It's no fun. That's why I'm glad we have CID!

CID is served by five airlines: American, Delta, United and two, low-cost carriers: Allegiant and Frontier. There are non-stop flights to 13 destinations providing limitless connections to destinations across the globe.

Congratulations to the Eastern Iowa Airport...keep up the great work!
