Reno-Tahoe International Airport received a feather in its flight cap after being named one of the top 10 small airports in the U.S. by a travel magazine.

The Discoverer called Reno-Tahoe International a great alternative to the more jam-packed San Francisco International Airport — especially for folks headed to Lake Tahoe.

“It’s a quicker commute and you get to skip all the Bay Area traffic and head straight to the serene lakeside,” The Discoverer wrote. “Plus, Reno has all the trappings of a big city airport — including slot machines — without the hassle.”

“These accolades directly reflect the hard-working and exemplary staff at the Reno-Tahoe Airport Authority and our tenant and community partners,” Daren Griffin, airport president and CEO, said in a prepared statement.
