If you’ve been taking flights out of the Reno-Tahoe International Airport, you’ve most likely seen the construction happening around the ticketing area, and from now over the next two years, you’ll need to allow yourself extra arrival time, especially with the busiest traveling holiday right around the corner.
The current work is part of a multiyear expansion project called the MoreRNO. The first piece of the project is construction through the ticketing hall expected to go on through 2024. Airport officials are telling you to arrive at least two hours before your flight as only two entrances will be open during construction to bring more space, light, technology, and art to the area.
Once the ticketing hall is complete, the Airport’s board also approved 500 million to build two new concourses. Adam Kramer, board chairman, says, “the gateway to Reno-Tahoe is being re-imagined and rebuilt for the next century”.
This expansion will house 28 new gates to make the northern Nevada airport a vital transportation hub.
