Reno-Tahoe International Airport (RNO) Master Plan

Airport Master Plan

Our Region, Our Future


The Reno-Tahoe Airport Authority (RTAA) launched a comprehensive update of the Airport Master Plan in October 2016. The Master Plan provides a roadmap for the future of Reno-Tahoe International Airport (RNO) and addresses airport growth, aviation industry changes, and Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) standards for the next 20 years. The Master Plan was updated using FAA Airport Improvement Program grant funding and complies with all applicable FAA requirements. As required, the aviation forecasts were approved by the FAA in May 2017. The RTAA Board of Trustees approved the preferred alternative development plan in December 2017 and adopted the full Master Plan in June 2018, pending acceptance by the FAA. The FAA accepted the Master Plan in January 2019.
