Volunteer Committees

Community partnerships are essential to the airport achieving its mission to provide exceptional air service, customer service and financial management. Our community partners help serve as champions of new air service as well as ambassadors to the public by educating and informing the region of the activities and developments at both Reno-Tahoe International Airport and Reno-Stead Airport. The following groups help the airport achieve these goals:

Air Service Task Force (ASTF)
The mission of the ASTF is to proactively support the Reno-Tahoe Airport Authority to maintain and increase passenger and cargo services for the region. This group of community leaders works together with the airport team to increase economic impact for the region.
