Nashville International Airport shares first look at BNA Vision expansion plans

The Metropolitan Nashville Airport Authority (MNAA) has unveiled the new look and design of BNA Vision, the growth and expansion plan for Nashville International Airport (BNA), through video, renderings, a 3-D model, and a dynamic virtual reality simulation.

The reveal included a look at the final plans for the renovation of the terminal and new plaza at BNA, including a hotel and transit station to accommodate plans for future light rail. It also showcased aesthetic elements celebrating the spirit of Nashville, including the authentic craftsmanship of instruments and reflecting the natural beauty of the city’s many parks and green spaces. The central entrance hall emphasizes the charm and hospitality embedded in the overall design and experienced throughout the terminal.

Bobby Joslin, chair of the MNAA board of commissioners, said, “The airport’s board of commissioners is focused on the long-term needs of our airport and the community it serves. BNA’s pace of growth demanded proactive planning, and this capital expansion project is designed to meet the needs of the region’s passengers, both business and leisure travelers, for decades to come. We couldn’t be more pleased with the scope, style and feel of the proposed BNA Vision that emerged from this process.”

Doug Kreulen, MNAA acting president and CEO, added, “At Nashville International Airport, we are dedicated to creating a travel environment that reflects our city – warm and welcoming, friendly and accessible. With passenger traffic continuing at a record clip, it is critical that we keep pace with our passengers’ needs for safety, convenience, amenities and new nonstop service. We believe BNA Vision addresses the challenges of our growing region, transforms the airport and helps connect Nashville to the world and the world to Nashville.”

BNA is currently served by 13 airlines and offers 450 daily flights, providing nonstop air service to more than 50 destinations.
