The Baton Rouge Metropolitan Airport serves all commercial flights into Baton Rouge. The airport is located about 7 miles from the center of the city, just off of Interstate Highway 110.

Taxi fares can vary dramatically depending on the time of day you travel and traffic conditions; plan to spend at least $20 to get downtown. Shared shuttles are also available at the airport from Airport Shuttle Service, J.P.'s Executive Car Service, Shamrock Sedans and Tiger Airport Shuttle.
