Message From Our Director
Dear Traveler:
 
Thank you for visiting our website and your interest in the Baton Rouge Metropolitan Airport.
 
The Baton Rouge Metro Airport (BTR) averages over 60 daily jet flights on the four major, network airlines (American, Delta, United, US Airways) to and from four hub airports.  With a single connection, travelers can reach virtually any major destination on the globe from BTR. Through their partnerships in the three global alliances, the BTR network carriers offer even more worldwide destinations.

When making travel arrangements, please consider the total trip costs including parking price differences, vehicle mileage costs (gas, wear and tear, depreciation, etc.), and the value of your time. BTR's primary tag line, Fly Easy, says it all.  Our "Fly Through Check-In" and "Ridiculously Close Parking" convey the fact that you will rarely find an easier airport experience. 

Some of the best suggestions for enhancing our airport come from you, the traveler. Sharing your thoughts, ideas, or questions will help us serve you better. Please email us or complete our Air Talk Survey to let us know what you think. From the parking lots to passenger gates, restaurants to restrooms, we want your feedback.  Rate the services and facilities used on your most recent trip.
 
Our terminal renovation and expansion project is nearly complete. The TSA security check point is now in the new rotunda area, providing more room and the option for an additional line. The old rotunda now serves as a comfortable arrival court with ample room and seating. Passengers have made favorable comments about the spacious, new rotunda, especially the great view of the tarmac and runways through the floor-to-ceiling glass wall. Similar compliments have been received about the new restrooms and terminal furniture (electrical outlets at each seat). Our goal is to provide passengers with a state-of-the-art facility that makes transiting our airport a pleasant experience. 
 
As always, thank you for supporting the Baton Rouge Metro Airport. We cannot be successful without your patronage. 
 
Best Regards,
