RELEASE – Airport Garners Business Impact Award for the Year from Chamber of Commerce
RENO, Nev. – The Reno-Tahoe Airport Authority (RTAA) was recently presented with the 2015 Business Impact of the Year Award from the Reno-Sparks-Northern Nevada Chamber of Commerce.
The Chamber has only presented this award once before and it goes to organizations who are forthright and transparent in telling their story.
“We know the impact RTAA makes on northern Nevada, and we’re thrilled the Chamber recognized our efforts to engage and enhance our community,” said President and CEO of Reno-Tahoe Airport Authority, Marily Mora.
The Chamber’s recognition was due, in part, to the RTAA’s development of new flights to serve the business and tourism communities, developing the Air Service 101 course to educate tourism and business leaders on air service development and the organization’s dedication to Honor Flights, special excursions for World War II, Korean and Vietnam veterans to visit the monuments in Washington D.C.
“It is my honor to accept the Business Impact of the Year Award on behalf of the entire airport family. The dedication and commitment of this great organization has earned the recognition of our peers,” Mora said.
The Reno-Tahoe Airport Authority receives no state or local funding. All operating revenues are derived from tenant and concession fees. The Reno-Tahoe International Airport (RNO) is the 66th busiest commercial airport in the United States, with 3.4 million passengers per year. For more details, visit www.renoairport.com.
