Nicki Behmer

For Airport Authority

I am running to use my experience as a local business owner, policymaker and advocate, and community volunteer to grow Lincoln Airport to meet the needs of our growing and thriving city.

Taking Our Airport to New Heights

Attract Business

The revitalization of the airport is an important step in maximizing growth for our community. It will help attract new businesses, bring individuals and families to live in, and visitors to play in our city. If elected, I will support the project and see it to its completion.

Add Flights

To best serve travelers, it is important that we can offer more options for daily flights to and from our city. I will work with stakeholders to prioritize an increase in air service.

Enhance Revenue

The revenue generated from LNK Enterprise Park helps support Lincoln Airport’s bottom line. It is imperative to ensure that this revenue stream continues to be strong and consistent due to the sharp drop in revenue from the COVID19 pandemic. I will work with industries to promote the wide range of opportunities that the industrial park has to offer.

Why I’m Running:

Lincoln Airport is an economic driver of our city with an impact of over one billion dollars annually, is credited with creating nearly 9,000 jobs, and attracts over 150,000 visitors yearly. Those are impressive statistics proving that LNK is vital to our community. I am running for the Airport Authority because I believe we have an opportunity to accomplish so much more. As a business owner and avid traveler, I feel our airport is underutilized and underpromoted. If elected, I am committed to being an advocate to encourage people to fly LNK first and I will cultivate partnerships in our community to do the same. I will work to understand the ins and outs of the operation, seek opportunities to enhance land use, employ effective communication with airlines, and connect with individuals and companies in the travel industry to promote grow our airport. I will use my experience as a local business owner, policymaker and advocate, and community volunteer to take our airport to new heights.
