New Flights from RNO to LAX:

Spirit is expanding service from RNO to include LAX. Starting August 14th, 2024, Spirit Airlines will offer daily nonstop flights between the two cities. This route adds to Spirit’s existing flight to Las Vegas and offers travelers even more one-stop connectivity to and from Reno.

RNO is also welcoming new air service from RNO to LAX on Alaska Airlines starting in October 2024. This flight is especially important to the airport because this gives RNO a One World Alliance presence. One World is a global airline alliance of 13 airlines that give passengers the benefit of collective power all working together to ensure a smooth trip and better international connectivity.
