The Metropolitan Nashville Airport Authority (MNAA) announced Nashville International Airport (BNA) served more than 14.9 million passengers in Fiscal Year (FY) 2018 (July 1, 2017 to June 30, 2018), breaking the previous year’s record set in FY17 by more than 1.3 million passengers. This is the fifth consecutive year BNA has set a new all-time passengers record for the fiscal year.
In FY18, 14,918,144 passengers traveled into and out of BNA, a robust 10 percent increase over the previous fiscal year.

“The astounding passenger growth continues at Nashville International Airport, maintaining BNA’s position as one of the fastest growing airports in North America,” said Doug Kreulen, MNAA president and CEO. “Per our forecast, solid growth is expected to continue, so it is imperative we continue to plan for our future needs. Our Board of Commissioners and staff are focused on expanding and renovating BNA, including adding additional air service, to ensure Nashville’s airport is a world-class transportation hub.”
