RENO AIR ANNOUNCES JUNE TRAFFIC

 RENO, Nev., July 9 /PRNewswire/ -- Nevada-based Reno Air Inc. (NASDAQ: RENO (common stock), RENOW (warrants)), which celebrated its first anniversary of flight operations last week, announced today it flew 55.2 million revenue passenger miles (RPM) in June, and had a total capacity for the month of 111.4 million available seat miles (ASM). The airline carried 108,745 revenue passengers in June, producing a load factor of 49.5 percent. Load factor for the second quarter was 53.4 percent, and 60.3 percent for the first six months of 1993.
 "We made some significant changes in the second quarter, which is traditionally a soft period for airline travel," said Jeff Erickson, president and chief executive officer of Reno Air. "We discontinued our service to the Midwest in June, and reallocated our equipment to the Western region. We also added two aircraft in the second quarter, and trained more than 100 new employees for our San Jose service, which is scheduled to begin next week."
 Reno Air plans to begin non-stop service from San Jose, Calif., to certain of its existing destinations of Seattle, Portland, Ore., San Diego, Los Angeles, and its hometown of Reno/Tahoe on July 15. Non-stop service between San Jose and Ontario, Calif., is scheduled to begin Aug. 1.
 The carrier currently operates 10 McDonnell Douglas MD-80 series jets, which seat 20 in first class and 120 in coach. Reno Air is scheduled to place two more aircraft in operation when it initiates San Jose service.
