The new service in Reno will run twice a week between Reno and Austin on Tuesdays and Fridays, on an Airbus 320 with 180 seats. The flight will depart Reno at 5:07 p.m. and arrive in Austin at 10:16 p.m. (Central Time). It will depart Austin at 2:39 p.m. and arrive in Reno at 4:17 p.m. Frontier is offering low introductory fares with select seats as low as $20 each way (fares subject to change).

“From the Biggest Little City to the Live Music Capital of the World, RNO connects you,” said Marily Mora, President and CEO of Reno-Tahoe Airport Authority. “We’re pleased to now serve Dallas-Fort Worth, Dallas Love Field, Houston seasonally, and now Austin, in the heart of Texas Hill Country.”

This is the second new destination Frontier Airlines has scheduled from Reno in the past six months, and the eighth new non-stop route from RNO in the past two years. Air service is on the rise at RNO with the airport experiencing increased passenger growth for the 32nd consecutive month. In addition to Frontier adding Austin service, they announced they’re expanding current service from Reno to Denver to four times a week (from three) starting April 9.

With continued growth in number of RNO passengers, more than 4 million in 2017, and frequency of flights, now it is up to the community to fill the seats, in order to keep this new service.
