Nashville International

In August 2018, Fraport USA was selected by Metropolitan Nashville Airport Authority to develop and manage the concessions program for Nashville International Airport (BNA). Over the term of the contract, Fraport USA will enhance the shopping and dining experience for 17 million annual passengers in one of the fastest growing airports in North America.

As of early 2019, the Fraport team is leading the design, construction, lease and management of 133,000 square feet of space in the airport’s four concourses. At completion, the reimagined program will offer an exciting mix of local brands that celebrate the region and its thriving food, arts and music scenes.

“Our goal is to provide travelers in and out of Nashville International Airport with exceptional customer service in an airport that reflects our city’s warm and welcoming environment, and we believe this new partnership with Fraport USA will do just that,” said Doug Kreulen, Metropolitan Nashville Airport Authority president and CEO. “This new developer model will allow local restauranteurs and retailers to independently own and manage their brands at BNA. Our passengers will be greeted by the authentic sights, sounds and flavors of Music City the moment they step foot in BNA.”
