Nashville International Airport is a joint civil-military airport in southeastern Nashville, Tennessee. The IATA Airport Code BNA is descended from one of the city's early aviation facilities—'B'erry Field, 'NA'shville, which was the name of the current facility until 1988, when the name was changed to reflect plans for international flights. The airport has four runways.

Berry Field Air National Guard Base is located at Nashville International Airport. The base is home to the 118th Airlift Wing, an Air National Guard unit operationally-gained by the Air Education and Training Command (AETC), as well as the headquarters of the Tennessee Air National Guard.

The airport is served by MTA bus #18. The Airport served nearly 10 million passengers in 2008, and over 79000 lt of Cargo in 2008. The Terminal Complex includes a 900000 sqft (83612.7 m2) passenger terminal with 47 Air Carrier Gates and up to 78 Commuter Parking Positions. It contributes $3.74 billion in economic activity and $1.18 billion in wages and more than 39,700 jobs annually to the regional economy. The Airport serves a trade area of 79 counties in Middle Tennessee, Southern Kentucky, and Northern Alabama.
