RENO, Nev. (MyNews4.com & KRNV)-- The Reno-Tahoe Airport Authority is putting the final touches on a new strategic plan to guide the airport for the next five years and a top priority is increasing air service to Northern Nevada.
The board of trustees met Monday to go over a draft of the RTAA (Reno-Tahoe Airport Authority) FY13-17 Strategic Plan.
In the plan the airport authority highlights five priorities they would like to focus on.
One, they want to increase air service.
Board of Trustees Vice-Chair Adam Mayberry says the airport will be looking to collaborate with local businesses and community partners to help market the airport.
"We can't do that alone it has to be done by the community at large it has to be done by folks such as the RSCVA (Reno-Tahoe Sparks Convention & Visitors Authority) or the economic development agencies," Mayberry says.
Mayberry explains the airport has the means to increase air service because it's a beautiful airport with enough runways and taxiways.
The airport authority also would like to optimize general aviation operations and services, expand cargo development and service, facilitate economic development (at both Reno-Tahoe and Stead Airports), and provide a positive environment and experience for all.
Airport officials say they hope to finalize the plan by May or June.
