Reno Airport (RNO)
The Reno Airport (Reno-Tahoe International Airport) is an excellent travel facility, conveniently located within Reno's city limits. It is served my several airlines, has excellent parking, and is easy to negotiate.
Bird Patrol at RNO
If you fly in and out of Reno-Tahoe International Airport (RNO), you may be wondering just how safe it is, particularly in relation to aircraft vs. bird encounters. The downing of a US Airways jet in New York due to bird strike engine failure got me to thinking about the issue.
Family Lanes at the Airport
If you are a family with children, flying during the holiday season should be a little easier this year. In a recent press release, the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) announced the implementation of family lanes at every airport in the country.
