As you head to the Reno-Tahoe International Airport for your Thanksgiving travel, be prepared to see a record-breaking amount of travelers. The airport authority says it is experiencing the highest November passenger numbers since 2008. Over the holiday weekend, they expect around 60,000 travelers, exceeding pre-pandemic levels.
To top off your travel impacts, construction at the airport is also bringing delays. The multimillion MoreRNO project construction has closed the former passenger drop-off lanes, reduced the number of entrances, and narrowed the Ticketing Hall. You are advised to arrive at the airport at least two hours early to navigate parking, construction, and the influx of travelers going through security.
