Fraport and Nashville Airport to add 14 more local concepts in 2023/2024

By Luke Barras-hill |

Fraport USA and the Metropolitan Nashville Airport Authority say a further 14 local concepts will join the concession mix at Nashville International Airport (BNA) in 2023/2024.

On 25 October, Fraport Tennessee marked three years since construction began on its re-imagined concessions programme to transform the airport and reflect the city’s renowned music tradition.

As reported, the airport cut the tape on 35 new shops and restaurants last year.

Local Nashville brands headline the current specialty retail and food & beverage offer, with more than 40% of total sales generated from ACDBE-owned units.

This is characteristic of Fraport’s key initiatives at BNA and at its other airports where it develops and manages the retail and F&B concessions programmes (Baltimore/Washington International Thurgood Marshall, Cleveland Hopkins International, JetBlue’s Terminal 5 at New York’s John F. Kennedy International and Newark Liberty International Terminal B).

In a nod to Nashville’s rich artistic roots, the acclaimed ‘Music City’ has taken centre stage at BNA with six live music stages including legendary hospitality venues Tootsies, Puckett’s Gro. & Restaurant, and Blake Shelton’s famed Ole Red.
