The world of commerce is rushing to the Nashville area, where companies from Japan, South Korea, Canada, the United Kingdom and other nations have created more than 36,000 jobs since 2001.
More global companies are investing in the region, and the inauguration of nonstop service from Nashville to London’s Heathrow Airport by British Airways, coupled with construction of a new International Arrivals Facility at Nashville International Airport, will make it easier for them to get here.
“We anticipate an increase in international flights in the years to come and want to have the capacity and facilities to accommodate these passengers efficiently,” says Shannon Sumrall, director of corporate communications for the airport.
The international arrivals terminal is part of a $1.2 billion expansion and renovation of the airport, which is being accomplished in phases. The international terminal is expected to open in 2023.
