Supporting the Community

Volunteer Committees

Community partnerships are essential to the airport achieving its mission to provide exceptional air service, customer service and financial management. Our community partners help serve as champions of new air service as well as ambassadors to the public by educating and informing the region of the activities and developments at both Reno-Tahoe International Airport and Reno-Stead Airport. The following groups help the airport achieve these goals:

Airport Noise Advisory Panel (ANAP)

The ANAP receives and assesses information on airport noise issues, provides recommendations to staff and the Board of Trustees on these issues and promotes greater communication within the community regarding airport noise.  Find out more information on ANAP.
