A leisure brand of ExpressJet Airlines, aha! became a part of the Santa Rosa/North Bay Area region with its inaugural nonstop flight from Reno on July 14, 2022.
This first flight begins aha! service between Reno-Tahoe International Airport and Charles M. Schultz-Sonoma County Airport.
“We are very appreciative of the warm reception we’ve had since announcing Santa Rosa as one of aha!’s newest routes – even Snoopy is celebrating with us today!” said Tim Sieber, head of ExpressJet‘s aha! business unit. “We’re thrilled to be able to provide passengers with an easy nonstop flight between Reno-Tahoe and Santa Rosa – two destinations that offer a blend of urban adventures and outdoor recreation.”
Travelers can replace a four-to-five-hour drive or painful layover with a quick 57-minute nonstop flight. Flights will operate each Thursday and Sunday departing Reno Tahoe International Airport at 3:40 p.m. PT arriving at Charles M. Schulz–Sonoma County Airport at 4:37pm PT. Return flights will depart Santa Rosa at 5:15pm PT and arrive in Reno-Tahoe at 6:12pm PT.
“Connecting these two recreational hot spots is a fantastic addition to our local airport,” said James Gore, Chair of the Sonoma County Board of Supervisors and representative for District 4, which includes the airport. “This gives our residents the opportunity to enjoy all that the Reno-Tahoe area has to offer and gives the Northern Nevada residents an excuse for a hassle-free wine country getaway. An absolute win-win for both markets.”
aha! is a leisure brand of ExpressJet Airlines. aha! seeks to provide travelers in smaller communities, many who have seen air service reduced over the past decade through airline mergers, with convenient, short, nonstop flights to high-quality destinations like the Reno-Lake Tahoe region. In addition to offering value-priced, nonstop flights, aha! will soon partner with resorts, casinos and attractions to “bundle” value-priced vacation packages.
