Airport officials announced Wednesday that the Nashville International Airport (BNA) exceeded 10 million passengers for fiscal year 2013, marking only the second time in the airport’s history to reach that figure.
The total passenger count traveling through BNA in FY 2013 (July 1, 2012, to June 30, 2013) was 10,064,661, which is a 3.1 percent increase from FY 2012. The last time BNA topped 10 million passengers was in 1993.
“This marks a milestone for Nashville International Airport,” said Rob Wigington, president and CEO of the Metropolitan Nashville Airport Authority. “We are once again seeing numbers we haven’t seen since before the departure of the American Airlines hub in 1996. This underscores Nashville’s thriving economy and vibrant tourism market making Music City the destination of choice for so many.”
Currently served by 10 airlines, BNA offers 380 daily arriving and departing flights and has announced 14 additional nonstop flights to New York LaGuardia; Los Angeles; Cleveland; Newark, N.J.; Pittsburgh; Pensacola, Fla.; Boston and Athens, Ga.
