Great News! @Fly_Nashville Announces Nonstop service to @IFlyOAKland on @SouthwestAir

Nashville International Airport (BNA) today announced nonstop service, giving Nashville Customers access to the Bay Area on Southwest Airlines, with service beginning in 2015. Southwest will serve daily nonstop flights to Oakland International Airport (OAK) starting on June 7, 2015.

“This is a great new market for BNA and the Nashville communityRoundtrip Flights from Nashville to Oakland,” Rob Wigington, president and CEO of the Metropolitan Nashville Airport Authority (MNAA), said. “The San Francisco Bay Area has been our top priority and the largest market without nonstop service. We’ve been diligently working with Southwest Airlines, with support from the Nashville Air Service Coalition, to secure nonstop service to this important market serving San Francisco, Oakland and Silicon Valley. We also worked closely with our partners at Oakland International Airport, as this new nonstop service is a win-win for both our cities.”

"We continue to add new destinations to give our long-time Customers in Nashville more flight options that show how we value their time," Trevor Stedke, Southwest Airlines Vice President Technical Services, said.  "We're linking the Bay Area to the Music City with the value, convenience, and Customer Service that only Southwest Airlines can deliver to them."

"It is exciting to see Southwest adding yet more service at OAK, and giving its customers in Tennessee the most user-friendly access to the Bay Area" Deborah Ale Flint, Director of Aviation for Port of Oakland, said.  "We are particularly pleased with our new connection to Nashville, with its strong cultural and business ties to Oakland and the San Francisco Bay Area region."

MNAA formed the Nashville Air Service Coalition in early 2014 and is comprised of prominent Nashville and Middle Tennessee leaders who represent the area’s diverse industries including technology, music, automotive, education and healthcare, as well as local, state and federal government, economic development offices, chambers of commerce and hospitality and tourism organizations.

“We formed the Nashville Air Service Coalition to better understand the travel needs of the community and strategically seek the best opportunities to foster economic growth,” Nicole Maynard, Tennessee president for JP Morgan Chase & Co. and co-chair of the Nashville Air Service Coalition, said. “From day one, our sights have been set on the San Francisco Bay Area, a region that plays an important role in Middle Tennessee’s continued success. This is a significant milestone for our coalition, and we’re excited about the impact this service will make on the community.”

“We are thrilled to now have nonstop service to the Bay Area via Oakland. The Air Service Coalition has been working extremely hard, on behalf of the Nashville business community, tourism and state and local governments to make this a reality”, Tommy Lewis, senior vice president of Emdeon and co-chair of the Nashville Air Service Coalition, said. “This is welcomed news for Emdeon, as it will provide more convenient access between our Bay Area and Nashville offices, as well as to our business partners in the area.  The San Francisco Bay Area is a major center for technology innovation and growth and this service will open the door for new opportunities for both established and emerging companies in Middle Tennessee.”

Southwest Airlines is Nashville’s largest airline, serving 84 daily nonstop destinations to 32 destinations.  With the recent schedule release, the airline reintroduces its seasonal service to Seattle/Tacoma (SEA), as well as adding additional frequency to Boston Logan (BOS), Los Angeles (LAX), Phoenix (PHX), San Diego (SAN), and San Antonio (SAT). Southwest’s low fares can be found only at Southwest.com.

BNA is currently served by 10 airlines and offers 380 daily arriving and departing flights. Nashville International provides nonstop air service to more than 50 markets.

Among Unhealthiest States, Tennessee Ranks 6th Worst

Tennessee, which ranked 45th in the nation among healthy states, faces a high prevalence of obesity and physical inactivity (with physical inactivity increasing 17 percent in the last year among residents), as well as a high violent crime rate.

However, it has a low prevalence of binge drinking and has strengths in its availability of primary care doctors.

Crabb will get audiences in the Christmas spirit with songs like "Mary, Did You Know," "Let's Make A Baby King," "Don't Save It All For Christmas Day," among others.

“I’m excited about Jason joining for a few dates,” Adkins stated. “I’ve wanted to work with him for a long time and I’m glad our schedules finally worked out. This is the perfect tour for us to work together”

Crabb said: "I can't wait to join Trace for his Christmas Show tour. We're going to have a great time celebrating the birth of Jesus Christ - the true reason for the season. You don't want to miss this!"
