Getting to the Reno Tahoe Area
Reno Tahoe International Airport (RNO) welcomes all the major carriers from around the U.S. each day, with many non-stops and arrival times to select from. Fly in and be only a short cab ride away from over 40 Hotels and Casinos and over 20 convention and meeting places.
As of June 2013 RTIA will operate 61 daily departures nonstop to 15 cities. With just one stop through ten major hubs visitors to Reno Tahoe can connect to hundreds of domestic and international destinations making travel to the region eaily accessible. In addition recognizing the value in airline frequent flyer and loyalty programs Reno-Tahoe maintains strong partnerships with the leading domestic carriers including but not limited to Alaska Air, Allegiant Air, American Airlines, Delta Airlines, Southwest Airlines, United Airlines and US Airways.
The airport is a model of smooth operations recognized as the fifth most efficient airport in North America by the Air Transportation Research Society. In fact Reno-Tahoe was ranked ahead of other regional airports including Las Vegas, San Francisco and Seattle. Whether visiting the destination for a leisure vacation or to attend a national convention the RTIA is just one more reason to plan your next visit to the Reno Tahoe region.
A third option is AMTRAK’s California Zephyr, which arrives daily from the Bay Area and Sacramento to the west and Salt Lake and Denver to the east. Trains from the Northwest, coastal southern California and the Central Valley connect to the Zephyr in Sacramento.
For drivers, Reno and Sparks are located at the junction of Interstate 80 and U.S. 395. It’s an easy and scenic drive from most of the 11 western states. I-80 provides all-weather access via Donner Summit from central and northern California.
From southern California, it’s a straight shot up U.S. 395 along the dramatic eastern front of the Sierra Nevada.
From the Northwest, take I-5 south to I-80 or, in good weather, opt for the scenic shortcut that leaves I-5 at Mount Shasta and follows California 89 and 44 southeast through Susanville.
