McGhee Tyson Airport can accommodate any size aircraft in today's inventory. Located 12 miles
south of downtown Knoxville, the airport occupies more than 2,000 acres of land.
Airport completed a $70 million renovation and expansion project of its main terminal and
concourses in the fall of 2000. The project included the construction of two new concourses, gates,
ticket counters, elevators and escalators, administrative offices, passenger loading bridges, restrooms,
gift shops and the first Ruby Tuesday airport restaurant in the nation. The addition of an 115 foot
indoor mountain stream added a natural element to a beautiful new facility that will serve Knoxville
and East Tennessee well into the next century.

Dallas/Ft. Worth, Orlando, Miami, New York, Chicago, Denver and Washington D.C. With more than 120
