Spirit Airlines launches twice-daily route between Reno-Tahoe and Las Vegas
Spirit Airlines has launched a new, nonstop service from Reno-Tahoe International Airport to Las Vegas. The route is operated twice-daily, enabling travellers to easily connect to 19 cities across the country.
“It’s an exciting time to add Reno to our growing route map as guests increasingly look to enjoy destinations with world-class outdoor recreation options, like those available in and around The Biggest Little City in the World,” said Lania Rittenhouse, Vice President of Guest Experience, Brand & Communications, Spirit Airlines, and President of the Spirit Charitable Foundation. “We look forward to serving our guests in Northwest Nevada with high-value travel options and the Reno community through our Foundation.”
Las Vegas is one of Spirit’s largest airport operations with around 70 flights each day. Spirit is the second-largest carrier by departing seats at LAS this year.
“The routes to LAS from RNO provided by Spirit offer more options for our region, which is great news for northern Nevada,” said Daren Griffin, President and CEO, Reno-Tahoe Airport Authority. “Spirit is a wonderful addition to the RNO family and we welcome them to this exciting time in our history as we offer Reno-Tahoe more airlines and non-stop destinations than we’ve ever had before.”
The Spirit Charitable Foundation commemorated the carrier’s entrance into Reno with a $20,000 donation to Urban Roots. The Reno-based nonprofit organisation strives to change the way communities eat and learn through garden-based education, building healthy habits and a respect for the environment.
