Fly Directly into Truckee and Tahoe City

 

Have you ever put off a trip to the mountains because you didn't want to hassle with the airports or brave the drive? Well, we have three private airlines that might be your answer. In the past couple years new airlines are popping up and offering quick, painless flights to/from the Truckee Airport and even landing in Tahoe City (via Lake Tahoe).

Surf Air

Excellence comes in many forms, but one of its greatest may be convenience. Surf Air is a private, all-you-can-fly airline servicing Truckee, the Bay Area, Southern California, and Las Vegas—making it an easy solution for avoiding commercial airlines. Simply show up 15 minutes before take off at Surf Air’s private terminals, and be on your way to Truckee.

Tickets are simply booked via an app and travellers are only required to arrive 15 minutes before their flight leaves. Unlimited monthly memberships that include Truckee, Napa, Monterey, SF Bay Area, Los Angeles, Carlsbad, Santa Barbara and Las Vegas start at $2,450.00 per month.

Blackbird Air

We are basically making up any excuse to utilize Blackbird Air. This private airline flies between multiple cities in Northern and Southern California, but the one we are dying to get on is the flight between the bay in Sausalito and landing on Lake Tahoe and arriving at a private dock in Tahoe City. The flight takes 75 minutes and prices start at only $124 each way! If you need to get to and from the Bay Area, this is a no-brainer. Flights are all booked via the Blackbird app.
