Airport Authority Culture

In the Reno-Tahoe region, the airport plays a role well beyond its runways and taxiways. It is important for the airport to connect our community to the world, it is also important that the airport connect with the greater Reno-Tahoe area. Innovative community outreach, membership in civic organizations and public and private partnerships are all hallmarks of the Airport Authority culture. Here are just a few ways our organization participates in the community:

  • Partner in Education with Swope Middle School since 1993
  • City of Reno “Corporate Challenge” – Participants since 2003
  • Nevada Women’s Fund “Woman of Achievement” sponsor
  • Hispanic Chamber of Commerce member
  • Leadership Reno-Sparks Adult Program participants

There’s a fun side to the Airport Authority as well! Employee events throughout the year serve as a great way to get together outside of work and grow as a team:

  • Culture Club
  • Fundraisers
  • Halloween costume and pumpkin-carving contest
  • Holiday Party
  • Kindness Takes Flight volunteer program
  • We Move You Awards / Employee appreciation events

Camaraderie and teamwork are the hallmarks of our employee work groups. Working together, we set high standards and take pride in the job we do to operate and maintain the airport, making it a safe, convenient and comfortable gateway to the world.
