Music City just got closer.
Southwest Airlines will add nonstop flights from Buffalo to Nashville this fall via the Buffalo Niagara International Airport.
Service will start Oct. 5 on weekends.
Nonstop service was available several years ago, but was discontinued. It was reintroduced in response to consumer demand.
Current flights typically have layovers of one hour or much more.
"It is a very popular destination," said Helen Tederous, director of public affairs for the Niagara Frontier Transportation Authority.
