Cargo Carrier Expanding to Northern Nevada

Posted: Updated:
The Reno-Tahoe International Airport welcomed a new cargo carrier to Northern Nevada on Thursday.

Amerijet Reno will be starting service in July at the airport and they hope by expanding out west they can increase their cargo moving capacity by 100 million pounds a year.

The CEO says our weather was a big reason why they chose to come here. "The ability to fly without an hindrance of weather is remarkable you're strategically located between Southern California and Washington State, you're really in the middle so those things really make it the right place to be," says Amerijet International President & CEO David Bassett.
Amerijet plans to employ about 15 people here locally, and an additional 25 to 30 jobs in trucking and handling.
