11-03-2015 - RNO Announces Non-Stop Service to Orange County on Alaska Airlines

Reno-Tahoe International Airport (RNO) proudly announces daily non-stop service to Orange County, CA on Alaska Airlines beginning March 16, 2016.

“What a great week for air service announcements,” said Marily Mora, President/CEO of Reno-Tahoe International Airport. “Alaska Airlines begins flying non-stop to Boise this Thursday, and now today Alaska announces a second great new destination, Orange County. We appreciate the excellent partner Alaska Airlines is for the Reno-Tahoe region.”

Orange County will give both business and leisure travelers another option for travel between Reno and the Los Angeles basin.

“Alaska Airlines is showing its growing commitment to the Reno-Tahoe region,” Mora said. “Now it is up to the community to support the flight and fill the seats, to ensure the success of the Orange County flight.”

Horizon Air, Alaska’s sister carrier, will fly the route between Reno-Tahoe International and John Wayne Airport, with a 76-seat Bombardier Q400 aircraft. It will depart Reno at 10:15 a.m. and arrive in Orange County at 11:37 a.m. It will depart Orange County at 2:45 p.m. and arrive in Reno at 4:05 p.m.

To inaugurate the new service, Alaska is offering introductory one-way fares as low as $79 on flights between Orange County and Reno. To take advantage of these fares, customers must purchase tickets by Nov. 9 and travel by June 8, 2016.

Customers flying on the Reno-Boise route, operated by Horizon, can enjoy free soft drinks and Starbucks coffee, a la cart planeside baggage service, and complimentary Northwest wine and microbrews for passengers 21 years and older. Buy tickets before Nov. 9th and save. Visit for details.
