Atlantic Aviation expects to complete its new FBO at Nashville International Airport (KBNA) by year-end. The 12,000-sq-ft structure, which will replace an 8,600-sq-ft one, will offer a luxurious lobby/passenger lounge area, cafe, private VIP lounge, business center, kitchen, crew lounge with snooze rooms, and showers. For the FBO staff, there will be an expanded training area, locker rooms, and a line-service office.

"The new FBO will feature a host of high-quality materials, amenities, and technology designed to enhance the overall experience for passengers and their crews, as well as our own team members—from safe and efficient line service to customer care,” said Kris Mayle, Atlantic’s area director.

Additions to the facility will also include a 30,000-sq-ft hangar capable of sheltering the latest ultra-long-range business jets, an expanded ramp, and a new 60,000-gallon-capacity fuel farm to replace the existing fuel storage area. To make room for the construction, a 26,000-sq-ft, low-door-height hangar was demolished. Once the new facility is completed, Atlantic will have 76,500 sq ft of hangar space, as well as 10,300 sq ft of office/shop space.

The company's recently expanded 24.5-acre leasehold includes property previously occupied by the Tennessee Department of Transportation.
