Remember the days when you could greet family and friends at the gate, or spend time with them at the airport before departure?

Nashville International Airport now offers a program that lets you do just that and more. With a BNA PASSport, you can dine, shop, or plane watch without taking flight. The free offering for non-ticketed guests launched on July 1 and allows access to the airport beyond security. Here’s what to know:

  • Only 75 PASSports are available each day and require a minimum 24-hour notice. Visitors can register for passes seven days in advance.
  • All guests are subject to the same TSA security requirements as airline passengers.
  • Guests under 18 years of age must be accompanied by an adult.
  • Visit the airport’s website for more information and to apply for a pass (scroll to the end for a complete list of FAQs).
