Nashville International Airport Has a Record Year for Travel

Nashville International Airport (BNA) smashed through its previous passenger record and announced a new calendar year figure with nearly 16 million passengers served in 2018.

In 2018, 15,996,194 passengers traveled to and from BNA, an increase of more than 1.86 million passengers over the 2017 calendar year, representing a 13.2 percent increase, and setting a new, all-time passenger record for the sixth consecutive calendar year. 2018 was also the third calendar year in a row to add more than 1 million additional total passengers, and the first calendar year to exceed 1 million passengers in every month.

The airport is well into a multi-year growth and expansion plan called BNA Vision, which will significantly build capacity to accommodate increasing passenger volumes. Upon its completion in 2023, BNA Vision will include additional parking, a new Concourse D, an expanded and renovated central terminal, an expanded security checkpoint, a state-of-the-art International Arrivals Facility, an airport administration building, an on-site hotel and possible future transit connection.

The total of passengers is not the only record that was broken.

BNA is currently served by 15 airlines and offers 460 daily flights. Nashville International Airport provides nonstop air service to more than 65 destinations.
