Your Truckee Tahoe Airport is open for aviation services and fully supports the State of California, and our local governments in Stage 2 COVID-19 policy directives. As we continue to monitor the pandemic, we wanted to share with you the precautions and operational modifications we are making to assure our number-one priority, the health and safety of our staff, customers, and constituents. 

We have stepped up our efforts to clean and sanitize the airport terminal building multiple times daily.  As an essential business, the Airport Terminal building is open to the public, but please practice social distancing and do not congregate in groups.  Some airport services that conflict with mandated social distancing have been suspended.   The airport’s administration offices are currently closed to walk-ins, and our public-use meeting rooms will remain closed until further notice. The Red Truck Café is opening for carry out and outside dining only, starting on Monday, June 1, 2020

As the situation continues to evolve, so will our response.  We will continue to provide updates and communication on our website and social media platforms.  If you have any questions, please feel free to call us at (530) 587-4119 x107 or at info@truckeetahoeairport.com.

Best Regards,
Kevin Smith, A.A.E., G.M.
