Economic Impact

Nashville International and John C. Tune airports are economic engines for the greater Nashville economy. In 2007, the MNAA initiated an Airport Economic Impact Study that analyzes the airports’ economic impact from on-airport business partners. These first-round economic benefits are re-circulated in the regional economy, helping create and sustain jobs, boosting the local economy.

Economic Benefit Measures
Benefits related to airport activities and visitors are estimated using three measures:
  • Employment - The total number of jobs
  • Payroll - Total annual wages and benefits paid
  • Output - The annual value of all goods and services in the region linked to the airports
