The John C. Tune Airport saw March fuel sales decrease 17.5 percent compared to March 2012 figures, according to recently released Metropolitan Nashville Airport Authority statistics.
A key cause for the dip involved the West Nashville facility losing a major client (actually, the owner of a jet) to another airport.
According to MNAA officials, the fluctuation is normal and can be attributed to various factors such as weather patterns and variations in flight schedules.
Opened in 1986, John C. Tune Airport has an employee payroll of $3.1 million. MNAA officials say the facility’s annual economic impact is $10.8 million.
