How to Find Cheap Air Travel to/from Tennessee

There are two major international airports in the state of Tennessee, and one other which merits a mention here.

Memphis International Airport (airport code MEM) is Tennessee’s largest and busiest airport, having served more than 5.5 million people in 2006. The airport is three short miles from downtown Memphis, and in addition to being a busy commercial airport is also a major cargo airport. In fact, chances are good that if you ship or receive a FedEx or UPS package in the United States, it will pass through Memphis. Northwest Airlines has a hub at Memphis International, and you can see a graphic showing all the airlines serving the city here.

Nashville International Airport (airport code BNA) is actually located within the city of Nashville, and is also sometimes known by its former name of Berry Field. The Nashville airport saw more than 4.7 million passengers come through in 2006. While it once served as a hub for American Airlines, today Nashville is just a focus city for Southwest. A full list of the airlines that connect with Berry Field is here.

McGhee Tyson Airport (airport code TYS) sits roughly 10 miles from downtown Knoxville, Tennessee, and is the state’s third busiest airport. It served just over 800,000 people in 2006, and also is the base for part of the Tennessee Air National Guard. No airline uses the Knoxville airport as a hub or considers it a focus city, but a list of all the airlines serving this airport is here. Delta Air Lines serves the most destinations from Knoxville via its regional carrier, Delta Connection.
