The Nashville International Airport ( IATA: BNA, ICAO: KBNA ) is an international airport in Nashville, the capital of the U.S. state of Tennessee. With 9.39 million passengers in 2008 it is the second largest airport in the state after Memphis airport. The airport has four terminals, one of which Terminal D was closed in 2001 because of savings the airline American Eagle Airlines.
The airport was opened in June 1937 under the name Berry Field. It extends over 1.4 km ².
During the Second World War it was used by the United States Army Air Forces, today's United States Air Force.
Only in 1961 a larger terminal was opened to handle the increasing passenger and air traffic. In 1987, the current terminal building was taken on Donelson Pike in operation since American Airlines here wanted to build one of its hubs. In addition, the airport was renamed a year later because of its international connections in its present name Nashville International Airport. But the old name still appeared in the IATA code, because BNA stands for Berry Field Nashville.
