The Metropolitan Nashville Airport Authority (MNAA) today announced the results and highlights of the third quarter of its 2017 fiscal year, which spanned from January through March 2017, and was characterized by continued strong growth in passenger traffic at Nashville International Airport (BNA).
By the numbers:
“Passenger traffic at BNA continues to increase at an unprecedented rate and shows no signs of slowing down,” said Rob Wigington, MNAA president and CEO. “These numbers only reemphasize the need for BNA Vision, our growth and expansion plan. We have to make the needed renovations to ensure our airport can handle the current and future increase in passengers and airlines and remain ‘Nashville-friendly’ and customer service focused. We are truly building for the future.”
In 2016, 12.9 million passengers traveled into and out of BNA, an increase of more than one million passengers representing a robust 11 percent increase over the previous year, and setting a new all-time passenger record for the fourth consecutive calendar year.
In January 2017, MNAA officially broke ground on BNA Vision, the Airport Authority’s dynamic growth and expansion plan for Nashville International Airport.
Also in the third quarter, MNAA announced the following new air service:
BNA is currently served by 12 airlines and offers 440 daily flights. Nashville International Airport provides nonstop air service to more than 50 destinations.
