Short-term parking just got cheaper at the airport

Nashville International Airport (BNA) will see its short-term parking rate reduced 20 percent as part of a simplified parking-rate structure.

The reduction — from $24 to $19 — renders the rate one of the lowest of its kind in the nation, according to Metropolitan Nashville Airport Authority  officials.

“As we attract more businesses and visitors to Nashville, we are focused on making our airport services as convenient and affordable as possible,” Rob Wigington (pictured), MNAA president and CEO, said in a release. “The new simplified parking-rate structure will make it more affordable for our customers to use covered parking in the lot closest to the terminal, Short Term, and offer a range of parking options.”

The new rate structure (see below) reflects continued upgrades at BNA, the fourth fastest growing among the top 75 airports in North America in 2011.
