Airports in Tennessee

Memphis International

Located just three miles (5km) from the central business district of the second-largest city in Tennessee, Memphis International Airport (MEM) is a regional hub serving the greater Memphis area. The airport is within easy distance of both Arkansas and Mississippi, making it a convenient alternative to several airports in the American South.

Flights to Memphis International Airport come mostly from other US cities, including Atlanta, Dallas, Chicago, Houston, Minneapolis, New York, Phoenix, Philadelphia, Denver, Boston, Miami, Charlotte and many other cities in the South. There are a few international flights to Cancun and Amsterdam with Delta.

The airport is small, but designed for efficiency. Travellers looking for designer shops and high-tech amenities may be left disappointed, but Memphis International Airport is a practical gateway to Tennessee, and just a short drive from popular Memphis attractions such as Graceland and Beale Street.

Nashville International

Nashville International Airport is a joint civil-military airport located 8 miles (13 km) south-east of Nashville. Having recently undergone a five-year renovation plan, the vastly improved airport building now comprises an enormous passenger terminal with 47 gates and four concourses.

A mid-sized airport offering warm service and adequate shopping and dining options, with a strong emphasis on honoring and promoting the state’s rich musical heritage, Nashville International serves as a pleasant gateway to the greater Tennessee region. Like all airports, queues can sometimes be lengthy (especially during holidays); however, operations are generally smooth and staff efficient.
