The Baton Rouge Metropolitan Airport is ideally suited to support and sustain business growth at The Aviation Business Park. Over the past 15 years, more than $500 million has been invested in airport and airfield improvements, including identifying and developing compatible land use at the airport for both aviation and non-aviation business development.

The Aviation Business Park at Baton Rouge Metropolitan Airport offers advantages to business of all types, whether aviation related or not. The site is currently home to several fixed based operations, and the Expressjet Airlines Regional Jet Maintenance Center, and boasts a new, state-of-the art cargo handling facility. But, other non-aviation businesses have chosen to relocate to The Aviation Business Park in recent years to take advantage of the prime location, and the competitive leasing rates.

The Aviation Business Park offers complete transportation access for all of the other modes of moving people and products.
