Eastern Iowa Airport (IATA: CID, ICAO: KCID, FAA LID: CID) is in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, on Wright Brothers Boulevard on the south edge of town, two miles west of Interstate 380. CID covers 3,288 acres (1,331 ha).
In recent years the airport has been served almost entirely by regional jets, but this is changing. Delta now has Boeing 717s to Atlanta and United has Airbus 320s and Boeing 737s to Denver. United also flies Airbus 320s to Chicago O'Hare Int'l. American, Delta, and United mostly use regional jets, although the size has increased on most flights to 70-76 seats with first class cabins, while Allegiant and Frontier fly Airbus A320 family aircraft. The airport sees five airlines with non-stop flights to fifteen airports. The airport has 9 gates on the upper concourse with jet bridge boarding. The airport used to be divided into two concourses, (B) and (C). After the renovation, all the B gates were removed and three new gates were added in addition to the C gates. The gates lost their "C" designation and became gates 4-9. The new gates 1-3 serve Delta.
Arriving passengers have a short walk to the baggage claim area. Several national rental car company counters and a courtesy shuttle counter are in this area.
On July 8, 2016 the airport announced new twice daily service from CID to Charlotte. The service started on November 4, 2016 and is flown on CRJ-700/900s by PSA Airlines for American Airlines. On December 18, 2019, American Airlines began daily seasonal service from CID to Phoenix, scheduled to end on April 6th, 2020.
On June 3, 2010 runway 9/27 closed for reconstruction, reopening on September 23. A temporary runway had been set up parallel to the closed runway. Beginning July 3, 2010, and lasting for 4 weeks, Runway 13/31 was also closed as they rebuilt the intersection with Runway 9/27. 
Cedar Rapids' first airport was Hunter Field, a private airport established by Dan Hunter in the 1920s on Bowling Street SW north of U.S. Highway 30. The airport was used for private charter service, pilot training, and airmail, but it was unusable during bad weather.
Cedar Rapids Municipal Airport was completed with military funding in 1944 but was not dedicated until April 27, 1947. The Cedar Rapids Parks Department operated the airport until a new Airport Commission was established in 1945; Donald Hines, who led the effort to build the airport, was the commission's director until he retired in 1973 (he died in 1975). Scheduled east-west passenger service from United Airlines began in 1947, and north-south passenger service from Ozark Air Lines began in 1957. In 1969 the airport had 31 airline arrivals each weekday and recorded 353,000 passengers that year.
The present terminal designed by Brown, Healey, Bock Architects and Planners was dedicated in 1986 with a ceremony that U.S. Secretary of Transportation Elizabeth Dole attended. The Cedar Rapids Airport was renamed The Eastern Iowa Airport in 1997 to reflect its status as a regional airport. In 2008 the airport enplaned and deplaned one million passengers for the first time in its history; it set a record in 2017 with 1,143,335 passengers. In 2019, CID set an all-time record with 1,342,496 passengers served.
