LONDON – Spirit Airlines customers can now find themselves waking up in Vegas as the carrier launched its new, nonstop service at Reno–Tahoe International Airport (RNO).

The nonstop route to Las Vegas (LAS) operates twice daily, offering a convenient and affordable alternative to driving between the two popular Nevada destinations or pricier airline options. From Las Vegas, Reno travellers can also enjoy easy connections to 19 cities across the country.

Lania Rittenhouse, Vice President of Guest Experience, Brand & Communications for Spirit Airlines and President of the Spirit Charitable Foundation, said:

 “It’s an exciting time to add Reno to our growing route map as Guests increasingly look to enjoy destinations with world-class outdoor recreation options, like those available in and around The Biggest Little City in the World,”

“We look forward to serving our Guests in Northwest Nevada with high-value travel options and the Reno community through our Foundation.”

Waking up in Vegas…


“We’re thrilled that our partners at Spirit Airlines are continuing to expand nonstop service to Las Vegas with three new routes,” said H. Fletch Brunelle, Vice President of Marketing for the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority.

“The addition of these new flights is extremely exciting as we welcome visitors to explore all that’s new in the sports and entertainment capital of the world.”

“From stunning new resorts and meeting spaces to spectacular new entertainment offerings and the most anticipated international sports special events, Las Vegas continues to flourish.”

Las Vegas is one of Spirit’s largest airport operations with around 70 flights each day, which now provides one-stop options between RNO and 19 cities across the airline’s route map. Spirit is the second-largest carrier by departing seats at LAS this year.

“The routes to LAS from RNO provided by Spirit offer more options for our region, which is great news for northern Nevada,” said Daren Griffin, President and CEO of the Reno-Tahoe Airport Authority.

“Spirit is a wonderful addition to the RNO family and we welcome them to this exciting time in our history as we offer Reno-Tahoe more airlines and non-stop destinations than we’ve ever had before.”

The Spirit Charitable Foundation commemorated the carrier’s entrance into Reno with a $20,000 donation to Urban Roots.

The Reno-based nonprofit organization strives to change the way communities eat and learn through garden-based education, building healthy habits and a respect for the environment.

The Foundation is committed to investing in organizations like Urban Roots that have a meaningful social impact on one of its three key pillars: Children and Families, Service Members, and the Environment. 

“We have had our sights trained on the ground beneath us and what it can produce for learners of all ages in the region. The generous donation from Spirit Airlines was a delightful surprise,” said Jenny Angius, Executive Director of Development and Operations.

“Our advocates in the air have given us a gift that will amplify our organization’s ability to drive sustainability practices, and as both of our organizations work to minimize adverse effects to the planet, we can’t wait to demonstrate in real time the ways their support change lives for our constituents.”
