24-Jul-2017 The Metropolitan Nashville Airport Authority (MNAA) on July 24, announced Nashville International Airport (BNA) served more than 13.5 million passengers in Fiscal Year (FY) 2017 (July 1, 2016 to June 30, 2017), breaking the previous year's record by more than one million passengers. This is the fourth consecutive year BNA has set new all-time passengers records for the fiscal year.

In FY17, 13,566,537 passengers traveled into and out of BNA, a 10.3 percent increase over the previous fiscal year.

The fiscal year also saw two record-breaking months for passenger traffic at BNA. May 2017 broke the FY16 record, and June 2017 subsequently set the new record for busiest month in history with 1,314,069 passengers, which was 8.6 percent more than June 2016.

"Activity at Nashville International Airport has seen unprecedented growth over the past several years thanks to Music City's ever-increasing rise in popularity," said Tom Jurkovich, MNAA vice president of strategic communications and external affairs. "All projections indicate that significant passenger increases will continue in the future. That's why we're expanding and renovating through BNA Vision to ensure Nashville International continues to be a world-class airport for a world-class city."

In January, MNAA kicked off the BNA Vision by breaking ground on a new six-level, 2,000 space parking and transportation center slated to be complete by the summer of 2018. Additionally, construction of the interim International Arrivals Building (IAB) is underway, designed to accommodate immediate needs for additional international capacity while the new, permanent IAB is designed and constructed.
