Nashville’s airport saw 18.3 million travelers in 2019, registering a seventh year in a row of record-setting growth.
Nashville International Airport says the traveler total was an increase of more than 2.2 million compared to the 2018 calendar year.
Last year was the airport’s first to see an increase of more than 2 million passengers and its second to welcome more than 1 million passengers every month.
By 2024, the airport plans to have finished additional parking garages, a new concourse and terminal wings, expanded central terminal and security checkpoint, a state-of-the-art international arrivals facility, a new concessions program, an administration building, on-site hotel, an enhanced airport roadway system and potential transit connection.
A $327 million overhaul of the airport’s terminal lobby and the building of a new international arrivals facility began in early 2019.
Expected to be completed in four years, the project is part of a broader $1.2 billion BNA Vision plan that will add parking, security lines and a new hotel, and renovate virtually every corner of the Nashville airport.
