Airport retail developer Fraport Tennessee has announced eight leasing opportunities at Nashville International Airport (BNA), adding to a range of new retail, food and drink, and service amenities at one of the country's fastest-growing airports. The locations will occupy over 15,500 square feet in the soon to be expanded Concourse D.

The Concourse D extension is part of the airport’s “New Horizon” expansion phase to accommodate growth for up to 35 million passengers. Nashville Airport marked another record-breaking fiscal year in June 2023 with 21.9 million passengers and additional non-stop destinations. This development has resulted in further airport and facility to meet travel demands and the region’s growing popularity as a destination.

“We congratulate the Metropolitan Nashville Airport Authority on its tremendous growth and banner year. We opened 25 more new shops and restaurants over the past 18 months and are thrilled to embark on this next phase of development. Visitors will have more retail and dining choices with Tennessee flair and much more to discover at BNA," says Matt Jennings, Vice President at Fraport Tennessee.

The design work for the Concourse D extension has already started. The additional terminal area will bring five new gates to the current six, eight concessions locations, and similar finishes and designs including high ceilings and expansive, inviting node spaces for travelers. The expansion will also feature a new open-air veranda for travelers at the end of the concourse. The three food and drink locations, three retail/service locations, and two “hybrid” locations will be available for handover and construction starts in February 2025.

The competitive RFP process opens on Tuesday, August 15, 2023. Proposals are due by the closing date: September 12, 2023 by 5:00 p.m. CT.

Fraport Tennessee invites qualified and interested proposers to a workshop for information on RFP goals, details, proposal submission requirements, and timelines. New operators are encouraged to attend an in-person or virtual workshop this month. To register or for more information, please email
