About Us

The Regional Air Service Corporation (RASC), a 501(c)(6), was incorporated in the state of Nevada in February 2015. However, it was originally formed as the Regional Marketing Committee in 2001 to support the Reno-Tahoe Airport Authority (RTAA) in efforts to maintain and grow air service, and to promote the Reno-Tahoe area as a year-round travel destination. The purpose of the corporation is to bring together public and private organizations with marketing dollars and expertise with the singular goal of positioning the Reno-Sparks-Lake Tahoe region as one destination, to identify national and international markets, to increase air service to and from the Reno-Tahoe International Airport and to target tourism and business industry goals for cooperative action.

The work to increase and promote air service cannot be done without the organization’s generous partners. We thank each of our members for their dedication and contribution to supporting air service in the Reno-Tahoe region.
