WSMV: Expansions at Nashville Airport could lead to more nonstop international flights

Non-stop service to Cancun, Mexico, and Calgary, Canada, were announced earlier this year.
The Airport Authority’s Vice President of Communications Tom Jurkovich says he is anticipating nonstop flights to Europe and Asia within the next few years.
