Concessionaire Fraport USA has opened seven new specialty retail shops at Nashville International Airport (BNA), Tennessee.

The new arrivals reflect the airport’s record growth in domestic and international travel with the first duty-free duty-paid shopping destination, plus Tennessee originals such as the Goo Goo Shop, Musicians Hall of Fame and Museum, and Tennessee Whiskey Company store.

Matt Jennings, vice president of Fraport Tennessee, said, “With the debut of our duty-free duty-paid shopping experience and even more local offerings, these specialty retailers are bringing a new level of passenger service to our program at BNA. The new shops are also landing in time for the upcoming opening of the state-of-the-art International Arrivals Terminal.

“We are committed to building a program that will delight and excite millions of visitors each year. Most new shops are locally owned and operated through innovative partnerships, bringing more Tennessee flair and Music City hospitality to the airport,” he added.
