Nashville International Airport opens new grand lobby

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) – Nashville International Airport has opened its new 200,000-square-foot grand lobby, with two-dozen security screening lanes and new art displays.

The first passengers passed through the lobby early Tuesday, using new CT scanners that produce a 3D image of contents of carry-on luggage and don’t require removing electronics larger than a cell phone and food.

Every item, including baggage, needs to fit into a bin for screening. Oversized carry-ons will have to be checked at ticket counters.

The new lobby marks a return to a single terminal for passengers. It features two massive video screens, a five-story sculpture, 105-foot hanging gardens that display Tennessee bridges, and more.
