3COVID-19 (NOVEL CORONAVIRUS) INFORMATION

April 03, 2020
 
Flights are operating at BTR although frequencies have been reduced. Please check with your airline regarding flight status. 
 
The Baton Rouge Metropolitan Airport (BTR) is monitoring Coronavirus (COVID-19) developments and is working closely with our employees, tenants and airline partners to proactively reduce the risk of COVID-19 impacting our guests or our operations. The Airport remains open in compliance with federal obligations. American, Delta, and United continue to offer daily flights from BTR. While connections to many international destinations have been reduced or suspended, passengers can still connect to most domestic destinations. The airlines have have increased the frequency and intensity of aircraft cleaning, and they are fogging aircraft with disinfectant one or more times daily. 

Flight frequencies have been reduced, but at this time service to all four hubs is scheduled to continue. Please check with your airline if you have any questions about your flights or wish to make changes.
 

What we're doing

We have increased cleaning and sanitation efforts, particularly in all of our high-traffic, high-touch areas, and have added signage reminding travelers how to avoid the spread of germs. We are also placing additional hand sanitizers throughout the facilities to encourage use. The entire airport is fogged each night with a sanitizing solution.
