Delaware North and Nashville Airport serve those who serve us this holiday season
 
NASHVILLE, TN and BUFFALO, NY (December 26, 2013) - Nashville International Airport and concessionaire Delaware North Companies Travel Hospitality Services are thanking our military this holiday season by providing complimentary meals to all active-duty United States military.
 
Throughout the busiest travel time of the year, any active-duty United States military service member flying through Concourse C at the Nashville airport can show ID at the Delaware North-operated Swett’s location in Concourse C near gate C6 and be treated to complimentary meal and fountain drink (non-alcoholic). The “Thank You Meal” program will end at midnight on December 31, 2013.
 
“We have been thrilled to partner with Nashville International Airport to serve members of the military during the month of December,” said Matt King, President of Delaware North Companies Travel Hospitality Services.  “Delaware North is also offering complimentary meals to the armed forces flying through the Austin Airport, and when our partners in Nashville reached out to us to extend the offer here as well, we were more than happy to do so.”
 
Delaware North is a family-owned company that believes in honesty, integrity and hard work.  The men and women of the United States military extol these same virtues. This is just a small way to show them how much their selfless actions are appreciated.
 
Please help Delaware North Companies Travel Hospitality Services and the Nashville International Airport say “thank you” by passing along our invitation for a complimentary meal to our military heroes.
 
In addition to the complimentary meal to active-duty United States military, Delaware North has worked with American Airlines to provide snacks and beverages for those flying to Dallas Ft. Worth International Airport on the Snowball Express.
 
The Snowball Express has sent the families of fallen soldiers on a trip during the holidays each year since 2006. This year the Gold Star Families began their journey in Fort Hood and traveled to Dallas for the week.
 
Delaware North also provided a $5 meal at Swett’s/Whitt’s for airport employees on Christmas Day.
 
"During this special time of the year, it is our pleasure to show our appreciation not only to our military personnel but also to our business partners here at the Nashville International Airport," said Jana Korabecna, General Manager at the Nashville International Airport.
