03 Feb BNA To Get Luxurious Private Jet Hangars Built By A New York Company
Nashville International Airport (BNA), originally called Berry Field, has seen tremendous growth and expansion since its 1987 debut.
Over the years the airport has evolved to include four runways and over 3900 acres serving 22 airlines with no less than 580 daily arrivals and departures.
Just recently, Sky Harbor Group announced an exciting new development; the design, development, and building of 9 luxury private jet hangers at BNA. This move marks the first time in Nashville International Airport’s history that such a significant investment has been made in private jet travel.
These luxury private jet hangers will service non-commercial private jet flights in and out of BNA, adding to the airport’s already robust services and accommodations.
Of note, is that this announcement is the first of its kind from an airport, perhaps indicative of the rise in private jet travel for its many benefits, such as privacy, concierge, safety (away from the crowds), and customized travel accommodations.
A Welcomed Addition to BNA
Commercial flights have certainly seen their share of problems over the last few years, from delays and security issues, to the looming threat of COVID exposure, airline layoffs, staff shortages, and more.
All of which have made private jet travel an increasingly attractive proposition for discerning travelers.
These new hangers will increase the airport’s private jet capacity and housing, generating new revenue streams and making private jet flights more accessible and convenient for local Eastern Tennessee residents.
An Economic Windfall for Local Residents
Approved by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), the proposal to build these nine hangers saw no opposition from the general public. And with good reason.
Overall, the project is expected to generate more than 2,000 new jobs for the greater Nashville, TN community, while bringing in upwards of $1.5 billion in new revenue over the span of 10 years.
Funded by a $200 million investment, the expansion is poised to be a blockbuster success, with the new private jet hangers capable of housing upwards of 20 aircrafts.
Part of the Bigger Picture
This expansion is part of a larger effort by Sky Harbor Group to transform the airport into a thriving hub for elite and luxury travelers. Situated along the north end of BNA’s property, this project will culminate in 9 technology-forward, innovative climate-controlled private jet hangers. Each of which will offer exclusive access to Nashville International Airport’s executive terminal.
The goal is to attract high net worth individuals and companies seeking convenient, reliable, safe, and efficient private jet travel into and out of the Nashville area.
