Location

  • Large cars - from $66 per day
  • Medium cars - from $73 per day
  • Premium cars - from $81 per day
  • Small cars - from $73 per day

Car rental desks

All of the car rental desks are located inside the terminal near the baggage claim area. The cars are located in a parking lot that is just a short walk away.

Services and facilities

As a small regional airport, there are not as many services and amenities as there would be in a major airport. However, there is enough to allow any traveler to rest. The only restaurant at the airport is the Acadiana Tap House serving American favorites, Poboys, and delicious beer. There is one ATM near the baggage claim area. Finally, the airport has a business center where you can print for a small fee or use a computer for free. Wifi is available in most areas of the airport.

Nearest gas station

There is a Shell station at 1551 SE Evangeline Thruway that is right next to the airport. It, however, has high prices. If you are returning to the airport from the north along US 90, then Exxon and Gulf stations at the intersection with US 90 Business about a mile north of the turn to the airport will save you roughly 25 cents per gallon.
