Nashville airport surpasses 10 million passengers in past year

Posted: Updated:
NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) -

The last time you were at the airport, did it feel more crowded? There's a reason for that.

The Metropolitan Nashville Airport Authority says the Nashville International Airport recorded more than 10 million passengers during the past fiscal year.

It's only the second time BNA has seen that many people traveling.

The last time was 20 years ago, when American Airlines still had a hub in Nashville.

Airport officials credit much of the growth to the new destinations and non-stop options available to Nashville travelers, including flights to New York LaGuardia, Newark, Pensacola, Boston and Athens, GA.
