Eyes On The Horizon

By 2041, the population of the Greater Nashville Area is expected to surpass 2.5 million people. BNA passenger traffic will grow from 14 million today to more than 23 million. BNA Vision is the dynamic expansion plan designed to get in front of this growth and maintain Nashville International as a world-class airport.

Precise details of BNA Vision will evolve as individual projects take shape, but the preliminary plan includes:

  • Constructing a parking and transportation center (currently in progress)
  • Interim International Arrivals Facility (currently in progress)
  • Apron Expansion (awaiting environmental permit)
  • Expanding Concourse D (in programming and design)
  • Expanding the ticketing and baggage claim areas (in programming and design)
  • Parking/Office Plaza (in programming and design)
    • Consisting of new Parking
    • Office Building
    • Potential Hotel
    • Future Rail
  • Constructing Permanent International Arrivals Facility (in programming and design)
  • Constructing the Central Terminal (in programming and design)
  • Relocation of Donelson Pike and Terminal Roadway (in design with Tennessee Department of Transportation)

How is BNA Vision funded?

No local tax dollars will be used. Rather, funding will come from bonds, federal and state aviation grants, Passenger Facility Charges (PFCs) and other airport funds.

How long will BNA Vision take to complete?

BNA Vision is expected to be completed over the next five-to-seven years. Individual projects will be phased in with different start and completion dates during this time.
