One BNA. Two Terminals.

Beginning Sept. 1, 2020:

BNA’s terminal will operate as two terminals. To avoid delays, passengers will need to use the correct security checkpoint (North or South) to get to their gates. It’s important to match your airline with the correct terminal to be in the right place.

Once past the security checkpoint, there will be no passage between Concourses A/B and Concourses C/D. (Getting to another concourse on the other side of the airport will require exiting and going through security screening a second time.)


Know Before You Go

Each checkpoint provides access to the following airlines:


Watch for Signs to Direct You

Signs will be placed in the following locations to guide you to the correct checkpoint (North or South) to catch your flight:

  • Airport roadways
  • Curbside
  • Inside the terminal (all levels)


Beginning January 2021:

The center of the Ticketing Lobby will close for construction. Passengers will need to enter the terminal on the correct side to reach either the North Security Checkpoint or the South Security Checkpoint.

Again, signs in multiple locations will guide you to the correct entrance, the correct security checkpoint and the correct gate.


What We’re Doing

We’re making big changes to the main terminal, which means we need to close the center section for the safety of our passengers. This is a temporary change, and all concourses on the secure side will connect again when construction is complete in 2023.

Upon completion, we’ll have a bigger, better BNA with:

  • A pedestrian bridge connecting the Terminal Garage to the terminal building
  • Expanded central security screening checkpoint (24 screening lanes)
  • A state-of-the-art International Arrivals Facility (6 gates)
  • New marketplace just past the security checkpoint with a variety of dining, retail and service amenities
  • A new look, complete with a higher roof and windows for compelling airfield views

Thank you for your patience as we make improvements to your airport. It’s going to be world-class! Mark your calendar for 2023.
