Just in time for the busy holiday travel season, the baggage check-in construction project at the Reno/Tahoe International Airport is nearly complete. Alaska/Horizon, American, Delta/Skywest, United and U.S. Airways began operating from the indoor ticket lobby this week and Southwest Airlines will join the other airlines in the refurbished check-in area on Tuesday, December 15. The new system is more efficient than the old system, which required passengers to stand in two separate lines for check-in and baggage screening. The streamlined system is also faster – the baggage conveyor system can move bags from check-in to airplane in 15 minutes or less.
