Concourse A Moving Sidewalks to be Removed April 25
Construction Begins on Interim International Arrivals Building.
Please be aware, on Tuesday, April 25, the moving sidewalks on Concourse A will be permanently removed so construction can begin on the interim International Arrivals Building (IAB).
BNA Vision, our dynamic growth and expansion plan for the airport, includes the construction of a state-of-the-art International Arrivals Facility (IAF). To accommodate immediate needs for additional international capacity, the current IAB will be expanded and upgraded to serve as an interim international passenger processing and welcome center while the permanent IAF is being designed and constructed. The interim IAB is set to open spring 2018.
Proposed enhancements include:
- Increase processing capacity from 200 passengers per hour to 400 passengers per hour;
- Additional passenger boarding bridge;
- Upgrades to the U.S. Customs and Border Protection processing area including installation of self-check kiosks and screening equipment; and,
- New Concourse A corridor to eliminate the need for arriving passengers to re-check baggage or be re-screened by the Transportation Security Administration, unless transferring to a domestic flight.
We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. These adjustments are necessary to make needed improvements associated with BNA Vision.
