11-04-2014 - London Gatwick Airport Non-Stop Flights Starting December 2015

Reno-Tahoe International Airport (RNO) is proud to announce new non-stop service between Reno and London’s Gatwick Airport beginning December 19, 2015.

In partnership with Ski Lake Tahoe and the gaming community, the airport will offer twice-a-week service between Reno-Tahoe and London, England on Thomas Cook Airlines.

This is the first ever non-stop scheduled service between Reno-Tahoe and Europe. And it is the second international air service announcement for the Reno-Tahoe International Airport in the past 30 days. The airport announced non-stop service to Guadalajara, Mexico on Volaris Airlines starting this December 16 and now London to Reno non-stop service next December.

“This is amazing news for our ski community, gaming community and overall economic impact for the region,” said Airport President and CEO Marily Mora. “It also highlights that Reno-Tahoe International Airport is truly the Gateway to Lake Tahoe.”

Non-stop service to London, England represents an important partnership between the skiing and gaming community in Reno-Tahoe. 

“Our ski resorts and hotel casinos have partnered to support this flight and bring our new European customers a one-of-a-kind skiing and nightlife experience in one of the most beautiful and entertaining places on earth,” said Mora.

The twice-weekly flight will operate on Wednesdays and Saturdays and on an Airbus 330 and will run from December 19, 2015 through April 9, 2016, adding lift for the winter ski season.

As a new international flight, it is contingent upon US Customs and Border Protection approval of landing rights. The airport is currently updating our federal inspection facility to handle the new Volaris flight from Mexico.
