Nashville to Embark on $1.2B Airport Redo

Nashville International Airport Authority has unveiled plans for a $1.2 billion renovation that will include new parking, a larger baggage claim area, expanded concourse and lobby, and a hotel. Known as the “BNA Vision,” the renovation and expansion will be among the most expensive in Nashville’s history. BNA is Nashville’s airport code.

One of the first projects is a new parking garage, on which construction is already underway. It will add 2,000 parking spaces, and is scheduled for a fall 2018 completion.
