Of these funds, the airport received about $34.4 million annually.

Scott Keechline, Associate Director of Business at Harry Reed International Airport, said: “Non-aeronautical revenues help lower our costs to air carriers while offering travelers a unique experience.” Harry Reid International Airport and Reno-Tahoe International Airport are the only two airports in the US where slot machines are available to travelers.

“Having airport vending machines is a convenience that travelers greatly enjoy and look forward to. The sight and sound of the slot machines upon getting off the plane sets the tone for the entire trip, an experience that can only be had in Vegas. And before the boarding gate, many also get the opportunity to win the last jackpot, ”Kichlein added.
