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 some international destinations have been reduced or suspended, passengers can still connect to most destinations. The airlines have increased the frequency and intensity of aircraft cleaning, and they are fogging aircraft with disinfectant one or more times daily. Social distancing is being applied, including spacing for passenger seat assignments to the extent possible. American, Delta, and United are requiring passengers to wear masks, but they will provide them for passengers without masks.
 

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. BTR requires that passengers wear masks in the terminal as required by the East Baton Rouge City Parish.
