Nashville International Airport (BNA) has unveiled its new International Arrivals Facility (IAF) and BNA Marketplace – two key pillars of the airport’s breakthrough BNA Vision construction and renovation plan.
The IAF includes six new gates and facilities designed to accommodate surging international travel to and from Middle Tennessee. The BNA Marketplace brings the local flair of Music City to BNA with new dining, retail, and service amenities to provide travellers with the BNA experience.
“BNA Vision was designed to take Nashville International Airport to the next level and meet the travel needs of Middle Tennessee not just today, tomorrow, or next year, but well into the future,” said Doug Kreulen, President and CEO, BNA. “Not only does the International Arrivals Facility greatly increase our ability to serve international flights and travellers, it also opens the door for future nonstop air service to Europe, Asia, Latin America, and other regions.”
The International Arrivals Facility introduces a set of six new gates specifically designated for international flights with ample apron space to accommodate larger aircraft. In addition, these gates will also accommodate domestic flights, further expanding the capacity of BNA. A new Customs and Border Protection (CBP) zone will streamline immigration and customs processes and can accommodate 800 passengers per hour using the latest biometric technology.
Meanwhile, the BNA Marketplace includes 15 new dining, retail, and service amenities, including ACME Feed & Seed, Titans Press Box, a full-service restaurant and bar in partnership with the Tennessee Titans, Voodoo Doughnut, and Kitty Hawk, a fast-casual eatery offering made-to-order dishes and convenient grab-and-go options.
