NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Nashville's airport hit 18.3 million travelers in 2019, registering a seventh year in a row of record-setting growth.

Nashville International Airport says the traveler total was an increase of more than 2.2 million compared to the 2018 calendar year. Last year was the airport's first to see an increase of more than 2 million passengers.

By 2024, the airport plans to have finished additional parking garages, a new concourse and terminal wings, expanded central terminal and security checkpoint, a state-of-the-art international arrivals facility, a new concessions program, an administration building, on-site hotel, an enhanced airport roadway system and potential transit connection.
