Spirit Airlines also announced Oct. 10 the company will expand its nonstop flight offerings beginning early next year to Austin, Texas; Cancun, Mexico; Newark, New Jersey; and Los Angeles. The airline said it plans to increase its flights to Orlando next year.

"We are delighted to have Spirit Airlines officially join the BNA team with today's inaugural flights," said Doug Kreulen, Nashville International Airport president and CEO, in a news release. "Along with beginning service today, Spirit's announcement of four additional destinations is fantastic news for Nashville and all of Middle Tennessee and demonstrates the attractiveness of this market and their commitment to serving our community."

As part of the airport's plan to reinvest $4 billion by 2033, BNA will expand to add an airport hotel and a 115,000-square-foot concourse. The new concourse will feature six new gates, four baggage claim carousels and dining and retail options, according to BNA.
