The Baton Rouge Metropolitan Airport is advising all flights scheduled to arrive this evening or Wednesday will most likely be canceled. The flight schedule on Thursday will be based on forecasted weather conditions.
Travelers should check with their airline to confirm if their flight is affected. Travelers can find a list of airlines serving BTR on the airport's website.
The Baton Rouge Metro Airport's budget is projected to increase by nearly 5 percent in 2013 to $13.1 million. That's according to a proposal presented to the Airport Commission's finance committee.
Cary Morgan, the airport's business manager, says the increase from an expected $12.5 million expenditure in 2012 will be funded primarily through non-airline revenue, which is expected to jump $400,000 to $9 million.
Non-airline revenue comes from parking, concessions, rental car companies, leases of airport property and other sources.
