Reno-Tahoe Airport Authority Investing $1 billion to Expand, Enhance Key Western U.S. Airport

RENO, Nev., March 17, 2023 – Paslay Group’s Advisory Services Division has begun a five-year engagement with the Reno-Tahoe Airport Authority (RTAA) to assist in planning and developing a new food and beverage and retail experience  in conjunction with the multi-year, $1 billion MoreRNO development program.

RTAA broke ground on the MoreRNO capital program in October 2022, starting with the Ticketing Hall expansion. This will be followed by improvements to the Loop Road and a new Ground Transportation Center. The program culminates  in the building of two new, replacement concourses  that will enhance the customer experience and expand gate capacity. Demolition and construction on the concourses are expected to begin in 2024 with construction scheduled for completion in 2029.

Reno-Tahoe International Airport is designated a medium-sized, multi-use airport by the FAA and serves more than 4.45 million passengers a year. The RTAA projects that RNO will see a 40 percent increase in passengers over the next four decades, to 7.3 million by 2046.

Margaret McKeough, PG Advisory Services president, said: “We are honored to have the opportunity to support the Reno-Tahoe Airport Authority as it enhances the passenger experience and prepares for an exciting period of growth. We look forward to helping the RTAA reimagine and expand their concessions program to highlight local flavor unique to Reno.”

Paslay Group is well-known in the aviation industry for successfully providing medium and large hub airports executive-level business strategy and program management services throughout the firm’s 17-year history. The company accelerated its concessions work beginning in 2016 at Los Angeles International Airport, where PG continues to provide concessions consulting services.

PG Advisory also is supporting the Metropolitan Nashville Airport Authority in executing a new concession program as part of the $3 billion BNA Vision program and new Satellite Concourse opening in Fall 2023.
