Reno-Tahoe International Airport Transforming the Travel Experience with Multi-Year Program

Improvements to bring more of what people love about RNO

RENO, Nev. – As northern Nevada continues to grow, our airport, facilities and services must grow, too. A record number of non-stop destinations (27+) and airlines (13), coupled with historic passenger numbers at RNO demonstrate the need for the airport to bring more to our region. 

Today, the Reno-Tahoe Airport Authority (RTAA) revealed a multi-year construction program, called MoreRNO, that is set to begin this spring to bring our region more of the airport they love. The first impacts that passengers will notice will be in the Ticketing Hall, as the airport team works to expand the space and bring more light, art, technology and functionality to this first stop in the travel experience. 

Simultaneously to the Ticketing Hall expansion, we will be making improvements to the loop road that runs in front of the RNO terminal. Other improvements in the largest-ever construction project at the airport include a new consolidated car rental facility and parking garage expansion, public safety center, new terminal entry and exit, concourse reconstruction and expansion, and a remodel of the terminal mezzanine.

“As we move into a new era for our beloved airport, have confidence that we will work hard to maintain the convenience RNO passengers have come to know and the amenities that make our airport special,” said Daren Griffin, President/CEO of Reno-Tahoe International Airport. “We appreciate the support we receive from our region and want to thank everyone for their patience over the next several years as we work to bring the facilities and services our passengers deserve.”

Due to the many changes RNO will be experiencing over the next several years, arriving at least two hours early is most important due to parking, airline check-in, and TSA security screening.
