WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Sen. John Kennedy (R-La.), a member of the Senate Appropriations Committee, announced today that the Federal Aviation Administration awarded the Baton Rouge Metropolitan Airport a $15 million grant and the Lafayette Regional Airport a $10.5 million grant for improvement projects.

“The Baton Rouge and Lafayette airports bring thousands of people to Louisiana every year and serve as hub for commerce, tourism and the last stop on the way back home,” said Sen. Kennedy “These grants will help fund projects that will improve the functionality and efficiency of both airports.  Baton Rouge and Lafayette are growing.  Their airports need to grow with them.”
