Phase 1 - Baggage Claim
A New Baggage Claim: The Tahoe look and feel has been extended throughout the first floor of the terminal building.
The Gateway project welcomes visitors to an airport lobby and bag claim area that represents the best of our region.
The Lake Tahoe theme of the ticketing lobby is now extended throughout the first floor of the terminal making the all important first and last impression on travelers. New features in baggage claim include the removal of the carpet and the installation of tile that evokes images of the Truckee River. Rock features on the columns and the muted ceiling blend with the Lake Tahoe theme. Construction began in December 2011 and was completed in May of 2012.
Celebrating the natural beauty of the region provides a sense of place for travelers in an airport terminal that was originally built for the 1960 Squaw Valley Olympics.
