Reno Airport Information

Reno-Tahoe International Airport (IATA: RNO) is a joint civil-military public airport located three nautical miles (6 km) southeast of the central business district of Reno, a city in Washoe County, Nevada, United States. The airport serves the Reno metropolitan area, western Nevada, and parts of eastern California and is the closest commercial airport to the vacation and ski resort destination of Lake Tahoe.

Reno Airport is the second busiest commercial airport in the state of Nevada after McCarran International Airport in Las Vegas.

The Nevada Air National Guard maintains the 152nd Airlift Wing to the southwest of the airport's main terminal.

The airport used to be the hub of Reno Air, a now-defunct medium sized airline that had offered non-stop MD-80 and MD-90 service to many cities, until Reno Air was bought and taken over by American Airlines and eventually completely disposed of in 2001. Reno Air's first flight was on July 1, 1992, and its last flight was on August 30, 1999.

The passenger terminal is named after the late US Senator Howard Cannon. The main lobby of the terminal contains an exhibit featuring the bust of Nevada State Senator (and Nevada State Senate Majority Leader) William J. "Bill" Raggio. Raggio is described in the exhibit as being "The Father of the Airport Authority."

Public transportation to and from the airport is provided by RTC Ride bus #19.

Reno-Tahoe International Airport is ranked at the 64th busiest commerical airport in the nation and in the fall of 2010 will open a new 200ft ATCT replacing the old one of more than 50 years
