About This Place
Reno/Tahoe International Airport is dual civilian/military airport situated approximately three miles from the Reno city center. RNO was built in 1929 by Boeing and was later taken over in 1936 by United Airlines. It wasn’t until 1953 when the city of Reno bought the airport. RNO Airport was an integral part of bringing the 1960 Winter Olympics to the nearby Squaw Valley with its completed terminals. The latest construction update took place in 2010, which revamped the ticketing area and updated to convey a Tahoe look to celebrate the regions beauty.
The airport is the second busiest in the state of Nevada, right behind McCarran International in Las Vegas and the 61st busiest in the country. RNO shares the space with the Nevada Air National Guard who occupies the airport’s southwest side, on the main terminal.
Nearby Las Vegas accounts for the majority of the airport’s destinations, with Phoenix, Los Angeles, Denver and Salt Lake rounding out the top five. Allegiant Air, American Airlines, American Eagle, Delta, Southwest Airlines, United and US Airways make up the airline choices for RNO passengers.
