Reno-Tahoe Airport Sees Rise In Passengers In 2016

RENO, Nev. (AP) — The Reno-Tahoe International Airport is keeping busy this year, with 50,000 more passengers passing through its gates than in 2015.

Nearly 3.6 million passengers traveled through the Reno-Tahoe airport in 2016. Airport officials say an increased number of destinations helped boost passenger numbers.

Currently 125 flights fly out of Reno daily with about 16,000 passengers on board. During the recession, the airport cut 35 percent of its flights but since the economy has been recovering, flights to Atlanta, New York and Guadalajara, Mexico, have been added.
