Cheap Flights from Nashville

Whether you’re here for the music, the food, or the tourist attractions, your journey from Nashville begins at Nashville International Airport (BNA). The airport was formerly called Berry Field, and the old moniker lives on in the IATA designation. The military also uses this airport along with a myriad of commercial aircraft. Although officially recognized as a medium sized airport, the airport has a number of facilities and services you would expect to see in a much larger airport.

  • Main Terminal. Officially called the Robert C. H. Mathews Jr. Terminal, the design is based on the “all under one roof” concept, and consists of several different floors that handle the airport’s commercial traffic. Past the departures area, the terminal is divided into four main concourses.
  • Concourse A. This is where the gates are for Air Canada Express and flights from United also leave from this concourse. Both airlines often work together on flights from Nashville to Canadian destinations. The concourse is small and occasionally different airlines share gates.
  • Concourse B. This is the second biggest concourse where you can find Canadian flagship carrier Air Canada, Westjet and subsidiary Westjet Encore, and several other local and international airlines. Air Canada has the most flights from Nashville to Canada, with non-stop flights to major cities. Westjet Encore runs a close second. You can also find the Delta VIP Lounge in this part of the airport.
  • Concourse C. The departure gates here are dominated by American Airlines and its subsidiaries. This is also where you can find the second lounge, the Admiral’s Club.
  • Concourse D. Although this concourse is currently closed, is has been opened occasionally for additional security or to handle additional traffic. Plans are in the works for a future expansion.

The four runways are ample enough to carry virtually all kinds of aircraft and more than 13 million passengers come through this airport in a year. While you’re waiting for your flight, take a few minutes to check out the Arts at the Airport project. This ongoing exhibit is found throughout the airport and a features aviation-themed artwork. There are also exhibits celebrating the city’s musical heritage.
