Nashville International boasts over 11% passenger increase

By Wendy Morley

The Metropolitan Nashville Airport Authority recently reported an 11.4 percent increase in passenger traffic during the first quarter of 2017 compared to 2016. With over three million passengers during the first three months of the calendar year the airport is on track for another record year.

January, February and March each marked the busiest corresponding months on record, and the airport has reported YOY growth for 78 of the last 80 months.

“Passenger traffic at BNA continues to increase at an unprecedented rate and shows no signs of slowing down,” MNAA President and CEO Rob Wigington said. “These numbers only reemphasize the need for 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.”

Along with this passenger increase, the airport has announced a number of new flights, including the following:

    •    WestJet will begin twice-weekly nonstop service to Calgary, Alberta, Canada, beginning May 4

    •    Delta Air Lines will offer daily nonstop service to Seattle beginning May 26 and twice-daily service to Raleigh-Durham beginning June 12

    •    Southwest Airlines expands to offer daily nonstop service to Minneapolis beginning June 4

    •    Alaska Airlines, as Virgin America, will begin daily service to San Francisco beginning Sept. 5
