Reno-Tahoe International Airport is located 5km (3 miles) southeast of central Reno. The airport is the second-busiest in Nevada because it’s so close to the holiday and ski resort of Lake Tahoe.
The facilities are limited but sufficient, with enough food and shopping to entertain passengers. There are slot machines in the terminal if you want to try your luck, but in Reno-Tahoe you aren’t tripping over them like in Las Vegas McCarran Airport. The airport rarely feels crowded, and is a pleasant introduction to the beautiful mountains of the resort area.
Flights to Reno-Tahoe International Airport are mostly regional, coming from destinations like Seattle, Chicago, Houston, Minneapolis, Salt Lake City, Dallas, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Denver, San Francisco and Phoenix.
