Continental Adds Non-stop Service to Reno-Tahoe
Houston Airport System
March 1, 2011

Are hot powder days in your future travel plans? That’s one of Jonny Moseley’s favorite things about Tahoe/Squaw Valley; when there’s snow with warm weather.

The Olympic gold medalist was in Houston on February 17 to celebrate the launch of the Continental Airlines non-stop, daily flight between George Bush Intercontinental Airport (IAH) and Reno-Tahoe International Airport (RNO).

With IAH being Continental/United’s largest hub, Reno-Tahoe passengers traveling to Houston will find many great advantages when flying this new route.

“Continental’s non-stop service between Houston and Reno-Tahoe is a welcomed route that lots of people are happy about,” says Genaro Peña, Houston Airport System’s director of air service development. “Not only does it give Houston customers a chance to get out of the heat, but it opens up a huge market of connections to Reno customers.  When flying into Houston, Reno passengers will be able to easily reach the Eastern U.S., Europe, the Caribbean and Latin America.”

“We are so excited about launching non-stop daily service from Houston to Reno,” says Cheryl Reed, Houston regional sales director for Continental Airlines. “It shows our commitment to continuing to provide a world-class network with world-class destinations. We enjoy working with the Houston Airport System; Houston is our prize jewel in our network.”

Other perks of the IAH-RNO service for Houston passengers include access to 18 ski resorts, 24-hour gaming and entertainment, casinos, bob sledding, ice skating on top of Squaw Valley, tubing in the mountains and much more.

Olympic gold medalist Jonny Moseley was on hand for the big celebration.

“We welcome all Houston passengers to Reno-Tahoe, my hometown,” says Moseley. “Not only do you get access to all the ski resorts where all the pros go, but you get tons of snow with low altitude and it’s nice and warm. It’s the best skiing around.”


Continental Airlines is following the schedule shown below:

Departs IAH:  9:50 a.m.
Arrives RNO:  11:53 a.m.

Departs RNO:  12:43 p.m.
