Baton Rouge Airport Guide

Baton Rouge has a lot of fun things to do. The Louisiana State University plays football and the matches are a riotous and friendly affair which turns into a huge feast at the end of the game. Try spending a night at The Myrtles, a reputedly haunted plantation that now has a restaurant and motel. On Halloween night, the hotel does its best to make sure you can’t sleep! Elsewhere there are many museums dedicated to the history of the city and a fascinating one is the Black American Museum which chronicles the part they played in the commercial success of the southern states.

Baton Rouge Airport is found four miles north of the city centre and once out of the airport grounds, you’ll find yourself on route 110 which heads south, straight into the city centre.

Baton Rouge Airport Flight Information

Baton Rouge Airport is a small domestic airport serving a big city because it loses much of its custom to nearby New Orleans Airport. Neither offer flights to Europe and the UK so you’d need to fly to a major south eastern airport before continuing your journey onto Baton Rouge.
