RENO, Nev. — Reno-Tahoe International Airport (RNO) was recently named the second-most efficient airport in the United States and Canada by the Air Transport Research Society. With low expenses, extensive flight maps and unique promotional incentives, RNO keeps travelers happy and traveling to Reno Tahoe stress-free.

Reno-Tahoe International is aggressively expanding in the air and on the ground. This year RNO added two nonstop flights: Houston in January and Minneapolis in July on its flight map. As of now, there are 17 non-stop destinations, 32 same plane non-stop destinations and 140 daily flights to and from RNO. They also just completed a multi-million dollar expanding and renovation construction project which took over 22-months. The ticket lobby is now complete as well as a high-tech security screening with updated baggage check-in which is resulting in a faster and more efficient travel experience.

In addition to renovations and added nonstop flights, RNO offers great low priced flights. According to the Bureau of Transportation Statistics, RNO’s average air fare is 12.6% lower than the national average. The average yearly increase of national fares of 5.2% is currently rising at twice the pace of RNO’s 2.7%. Out of the top 100 commercial airports in the United States, 79 had a higher average airfare than Reno-Tahoe International.

Reno-Tahoe International’s operating style is reflected in the unique structure of its revenue streams. With 70% of revenues derived from non-airline sources, this financial set-up keeps landing fees low, resulting in lower fares for travelers. Reno-Tahoe International is less dependent upon airlines for revenue during these challenging times for the airline industry than other leading airports.
