RENO AIR ANNOUNCES OCTOBER TRAFFIC

 RENO, Nev., Nov. 12 /PRNewswire/ -- Nevada-based Reno Air Inc. (NASDAQ: RENO; PSE: RNO) today announced October enplanements were 197,843, while revenue passenger miles (RPMs) were 95.2 million. With a capacity of 193.6 million available seat miles (ASMs), the carrier's October 1993 load factor was 49.2 percent.
 Earlier this week, Jeff Erickson, president and chief executive officer of Reno Air, said the seasonal decline in passenger traffic between Labor Day and Thanksgiving would adversely affect the carrier's load factor.
 "With the exception of the upcoming holidays, we would expect fourth quarter traffic to be slow, until our previously announced schedule goes into effect in mid-December."
 Reno Air plans to add service to Las Vegas, Tucson and Phoenix next month, as well as additional routes from its hubs in San Jose and Reno/Tahoe. The airline operated 15 McDonnell Douglas MD-80 series jet aircraft last month, but had only five MD-80s in service in October 1992.
 Reno Air currently leases 17 MD-80s, and serves Seattle, Portland, Ore., San Jose, Burbank, Los Angeles, San Diego and Ontario, Calif., as well as its hometown of Reno-Tahoe. The carrier will discontinue service to San Francisco on Dec. 1 due to unprofitable operations.
