aha! to Launch Nonstop Service from Redmond/Central Oregon to Reno-Tahoe International Airport


ExpressJet Airlines announced the launch of short, nonstop flights between Redmond/Central Oregon and Reno-Tahoe International Airport, starting November 5, 2021.

Convenient Nonstop Flights = More Vacations and Trips

Flights will operate each Monday, Wednesday and Friday departing Redmond Municipal Airport at 11:55am PT arriving in Reno-Tahoe at 1:16pm PT. The quick one hour and 21 minute nonstop flight eliminates the need for time consuming connections at crowded hubs or a long drive. Nonstop flights give travelers more time for adventure and less time traveling making short, spontaneous vacations possible. Return flights will operate on the same days, departing Reno-Tahoe at 9:50am PT and arriving in Redmond at 11:11am PT.

“Redmond Airport and the Central Oregon Region are very excited to partner with ExpressJet to offer a brand new nonstop destination option to Reno/Tahoe International Airport for all of our customers,” said Redmond Municipal Airport’s Airport Director Zachary Bass.

Exciting and Vibrant Reno-Tahoe

aha! is ExpressJet Airlines’ “air-hotel-adventure” leisure brand designed for travelers to enjoy Reno-Tahoe’s regional bounty — including exciting casino resorts and live entertainment, a diverse art and dining scene and the world-class ski-golf-outdoor activities around Lake Tahoe, North America’s largest alpine lake. Thrill seekers can also take in exciting shows and annual events including Burning Man, Hot August Nights, Reno Rodeo, Lake Tahoe Shakespeare Festival, Barracuda Championship-PGA TOUR event, Great Reno Balloon Races, National Championship Air Races, Lake Tahoe Snowfest and more.

“The Reno-Tahoe region offers travelers a wide range of fun and unique experiences,” said Head of ExpressJet’s aha! business unit Tim Sieber. “With the time savings of nonstop flights and packages with great deals at a curated collection of the best hotels and casino resorts in the region coming soon, we’re giving travelers everything they need to customize their own great, short vacation.”

Special Introductory $49 Fares

aha! is offering an introductory, limited-time launch fare of $49 each way*. Vacation-seekers can book at flyaha.com.

Coming Soon, aha! will offer value-priced vacation packages on flyaha.com that will offer travelers great savings on short two to five-night vacation getaways.

Experience and Reliability

aha! is powered by ExpressJet Airlines, which has operated reliable air services to hundreds of smaller cities in the United States for 35 years. All flights will be operated with 50 seat Embraer ERJ-145 jets, with comfortable cabins and no middle seats.

“ExpressJet developed aha! after hearing from travelers in smaller communities who were tired of wasting two days of each vacation traveling on airplanes and through crowded hub-airports,” said ExpressJet’s CEO Subodh Karnik.
