A Big Change is Coming Oct. 6

As progress continues on our BNA Vision expansion and renovation plan, there’s a change you’ll need to know about.

Beginning Oct. 6, 2020, the central escalators, elevator and stairs, and the current Level 1 entrance will close due to construction. But don’t worry!

  • New escalators will open on the North and South sides of Levels 1, 2 and 3 to help you move between levels.
  • New entrances are also opening on Level 1 this week, and the ground-floor escalators and elevators are right inside.
  • Signs will direct you to the new entrances.
  • Have a heavy bag? When you enter on Level 1, elevators are located just past the escalators for an easy ride to the Departures level.

Here’s why:

  • We’re undergoing a major terminal renovation, complete with a higher roof and a distinctive new roof canopy.
  • To do this, we have to build a 198-foot tower crane where the central elevator and stairs are today. That means demolishing the central escalators, elevator and stairs.
  • This closure is necessary for the safety of our passengers, guests and employees.

Thank you for your patience as we build a bigger, better BNA. It’s going to be world-class!
