NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Nashville International Airport is allowing travelers to carry beer and alcoholic drinks throughout the secure area of the airport, instead of confining them to designated areas.

The Tennessean reports (https://tnne.ws/1wIjCch) the change is the result of new liquor and beer permits acquired by the Metro Nashville Airport Authority. Under the old policy, restaurants had to get their own alcohol permits.

There are restrictions: the drinks must stay in the secure areas of the airport and travelers can’t take them onto planes.

Local brewery Yazoo has a kiosk that takes advantage of the policy change. It features a sign alerting customers that they can take cups of beer to the gate to wait for their flights.

A spokeswoman says the airport authority sought the change to provide convenience to travelers.
