Nebraska City Municipal Airport (ICAO: KAFKFAA LID: AFK) is a public airport located four miles (6 km) south of the central business district of Nebraska City, in Otoe County, Nebraska, United States. It is owned by the Nebraska City Airport Authority.[1]

The airport was constructed as a replacement for Grundman Field and opened in 1994. Located inside the city limits Grundman Field could not lengthen the runway to accommodate business jets. In 1974 when then Mayor A. O. Gigstard created the airport authority to build Nebraska City Municipal the voters had him recalled and removed from office. He returned as mayor in 1980 as a write-in candidate. Later the new airport was approved by the voters as a bond measure.[2]

Although most U.S. airports use the same three-letter location identifier for the FAA and IATA, Nebraska City Municipal is assigned AFK by the FAA but has no designation from the IATA.[3]
