According to Marily Mora, President/CEO of the Reno-Tahoe International Airport, the new daily connectivity to Atlanta from Reno “is a victory for our entire region. Customers have filled the seats when Atlanta was just seasonal, and our Regional Air Service Corporation has worked with our air service team to make it daily. We are proud of our strong relationship with Delta Air Lines and the support they have shown our community.”
