04-29-2016 - Reno Airport Announces Non-Stop Service to Atlanta

Reno-Tahoe International Airport (RNO) proudly announces non-stop service to Atlanta, Ga., the world’s biggest and busiest airport, starting December 19, 2016.

Delta Air Lines is starting Atlanta service just in time for the holidays and winter ski season. Delta will fly non-stop between Reno-Tahoe and Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport.

The Atlanta-Reno flight will begin as three times per week service during the holidays, from December 19, 2016 until January 3, 2017. Then the service will be offered weekly, on Saturdays only, between January 7, 2017 and March 26, 2017.

Delta Air Lines flew the Atlanta-Reno route from 2004 – 2009 and had a high load factor of 84%, with the vast majority of those passengers connecting to domestic or international destinations. The flight performed well and now Delta is bringing the popular service back.

“Atlanta and the Southeastern US are critical markets for all facets and sectors of our region,” said Andy Wirth, Chairman of the Airport Board of Trustees, “and as part of our strategic plan, we’re thrilled to announce this new non-stop service on Delta to and from the world’s busiest airport, and with such a globally respected carrier.”

The Atlanta-Reno route will offer passengers connection opportunities to 90 destinations across the entire Eastern U.S. & Canada, Caribbean, Central America, South America, Africa and Europe.

“This new service on Delta marks the 8th new flight we have added at Reno-Tahoe International in the past 16 months,” continued Wirth.  "Air service is truly taking off in our region.”

The flight will operate three times a week from December 19, 2016 until January 3, 2017, with the following schedule:

  • Westbound - The ATL-RNO operates on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.
  • Eastbound - The RNO-ATL flights will operate on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays.
  • The flight will depart ATL at 5:59 PM and arrive RNO at 8:20 PM
  • The aircraft will remain at RNO overnight
  • The following morning the aircraft will depart RNO at 7:00 AM and arrives ATL at 2:15 PM

Then the flight will be reduced to weekly, Saturday only service from January 7, 2017 until March 26, 2017, with the following schedule:

  • The flight will depart ATL at 4:00 PM and arrive RNO at 6:19 PM
