I don't see international flights coming in or out of BTR anytime soon. I don't think we could sustain international flights on a regular basis. Maybe we could do something to the Carribean twice a week. If it is marketed correctly, that may work.

I do not see BR getting an International Airport antime soon; being only 75-80 miles from NOLA's Int' Airport is a big reason. A DFW type airport would be nice between NOLA & BR connected by light-rail transit, but don't see that coming in the near future either.

I notice around the country more and more cities with International Airports popping-up; when they don't seem like legit International Airports.

I wouldn't hold my breath. Disney wouldn't move an amusement park here.

They might open a studio, though.

Even so, Baton Rouge will never be a hub. At best, it will be a super regional airport like Cincy or NOLA or Orlando....which is probably a better alternative to being a small hub as far as ticket prices are concerned.
