Southwest to add nonstops connecting Music City to Big Apple

Southwest Airlines announced today two new nonstop flights between Nashville International Airport (BNA) and both LaGuardia Airport and Newark Liberty International Airport. 

“Nashville International is pleased to give our passengers more options to connect to the Big Apple,” Rob Wigington, president and CEO of the Metropolitan Nashville Airport Authority, said in a release. “New York City and Newark are popular business and leisure markets for Music City.”

Eli Rodriquez, Southwest’s Nashville station leader, said that the improved connectivity between the two cities shows Southwest’s commitment to Nashville and BNA.

Southwest Airlines began service to Nashville in 1986. Since then, the company has grown its operation to more than 77 daily nonstop departures to nearly 30 cities. From Nashville, and specifically, Southwest offers eight daily nonstop departures to Chicago and Houston.
