Reno-Tahoe International Airport’s New Gateway – Now Open

The Reno-Tahoe International Airport’s impressive makeover continues…

First the ticketing area, then the baggage claim, and now the Reno-Tahoe International Airport will unveil its new security checkpoint and shopping/dining area. The $27 million in improvements embraces the natural look and feel of the Sierra Mountains.

Passengers will experience a new way to fly with the opening of the Security Checkpoint on the first floor, additional queuing and screening lanes, and new state-of-the-art technology.  Once through security, passengers will be able to flow from one concourse to another and enjoy a whole new safer and secure passenger experience.

The new Food Court will be built in a dramatic new airport venue on the second floor, just past the escalators.  The post-security, 21,000 square foot addition will feature 18-foot ceilings and windows looking out over the tarmac.  Passengers will dine with a panoramic view of arriving and departing aircraft against a desert mountain backdrop.

From outdoor clothing, to high tech electronic items, customers will find a wider selection of stores and products.

Coming Soon

Children’s play area (opening end of March), and art gallery featuring northern Nevada’s wild horses (opening end of April)!
