Nashville International Airport

Recommended Posts


American was positioning themselves to take on some point-to-point (P2P) routes from certain cities, see Austin & Seattle for example, and was in the process of starting for Nashville back at corporate in Fort Worth, and then COVID dropped in on the party.

Who knows how things will shake out, but I think BNA will be well-positioned once tourism bounces back, particularly in the domestic market, to grow further. American made clear moves by upgauging aircraft sizes & also getting mainline ramp back in versus Envoy-run ramp. Airlines don't place mainline ground ops without investment or intentions to just sit around.

The central ticketing lobby will be closed for construction starting Dec. 16th thru early 2023 for construction of the major new interior open space that will include a larger entrance hall, an expanded security checkpoint with 24 lanes, an international arrivals facility with six gates and a new marketplace just beyond the security checkpoint.

As previously revealed, the airport will operate out of two terminals. North Terminal includes gates A and B, and South Terminal includes gates C and D. Beginning December 16, passengers will not be able to move between terminals once inside the airport.

I think this was discussed and the thoughts were Smyrna could be a good location for that, however, BNA could certainly handle the added traffic easily.

I do think Middle TN would be the logical choice in order to compete with UPS & Fed Ex noting the locations of their transit hubs. Those were not chosen to be in the center of the country by chance.

I thought Amazon had already announced Cincinnati as their hub 2-3 years ago. If that is correct, I could see them having operations here, but I can’t imagine they would have anything resembling a hub operation anywhere in the regional vicinity of Cincinnati.

Yeah, Cincinnati/northern Kentucky (CVG) is the largest Amazon hub, along with DHL's hub there as well. Amazon has a focus operation nearby in Wilmington, OH as well.
