"For Pasco, and the seven other communities, the new nonstop aha! flights to Reno-Tahoe eliminate the hassle of a long drive or multiple airport connections and layovers. Residents can now take a one-to-two-hour nonstop flight and partake of Reno and Tahoe's bounty, or conduct business, without wasting a whole travel day. Perfect for short spontaneous trips!" said Subodh Karnik, CEO of aha! parent ExpressJet.

aha! will serve each community three times a week with 50-seat Embraer ERJ145 regional jets. In the coming months, aha! plans to reach 20 western U.S. cities from Reno-Tahoe.
