“As we continue to build a world-class airport, this new programme opens the door for everyone, not just travellers, to experience BNA like a local,” said Doug Kreulen, president and CEO of BNA. “Our restaurants and shops capture the essence of Nashville, and BNA PASSport creates an exciting way to explore them. Grab a bite, browse the shops, and experience Music City, all under one roof.” 

A daily allowance of 75 non-ticketed visitors can receive approval to access post-security areas from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. seven days a week. Guests can apply – online at, providing a minimum of 24-hour notice and up to seven days in advance. Applicants can expect to receive an email indicating approval or denial – at midnight the day of the requested visit.  

All participants in the BNA PASSport programme are subject to the same Transportation Security Administration (TSA) security requirements and regulations as passengers boarding an aircraft. Ticketed passengers will be given priority through the passenger screening checkpoints to board their flights.  

Visitors must be at least 18 years old to take part in this free program. Individuals under this age must be accompanied by an adult.
