The Baton Rouge Metro Airport should be getting money from the stimulus plan, passed by congress this summer.
It will pay for the construction of a new safety building.
The money comes amid struggles for small to mid-size airports nationwide.
Some of the cities have even had to offer incentives to keep carriers in town.
Folks with the Baton Rouge Airport say they're going strong, balancing out their day to day travelers with corporate flights and cargo.
Plus, they're offering perks of their own.
