As a small airport, Baton Rouge Metropolitan (BTR) offers passengers a choice among four different airlines: Delta, United Express, American Eagle, and US Airways. Each of the four airlines offers service to its own hub city in the southeast United States where passengers may connect to flights with destinations around the world.
The four airlines are split between two concourses at the airport’s only terminal. In the A concourse, passengers will find Delta and United Express airlines, while American Eagle and US Airways airlines are assigned to the B concourse.
The busiest airline at BTR is Delta, which offers non-stop flights to and from Delta’s hubs at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport (ATL) and Memphis International Airport (MEM). Passengers can expect up to half a dozen flights each way between Baton Rouge and Atlanta daily, with one direct flight to and from Memphis. Delta is the only airline serving Baton Rouge with enough traffic to be assigned two gates.
Sharing space with Delta in the A concourse, United Express operates five to seven non-stop flights daily to and from George Bush Intercontinental Airport (IAH) in United Airlines’ hub city of Houston. Weekday schedules provide more options than those on Saturdays and Sundays, when demand is lower.
From its gate in the B concourse, American Eagle offers six to eight non-stop flights per day, depending on the day of the week, to and from the American Airlines hub at Dallas/Ft. Worth International Airport (DFW). As with United Express, more flights are scheduled during the week to accommodate higher numbers of passengers.
Also located in the B Concourse, US Airways offers two flights to Charlotte Douglas International Airport (CLT) in North Carolina each weekday, with three flights on the return schedule, which includes a late evening arrival in Baton Rouge. In Charlotte, passengers can connect to a growing list of cities in the United States and worldwide.
