About Chennault International Airport
Chennault International Airport is the home base for leading companies in aircraft MRO, manufacturing, transportation and service industries — and there’s plenty of room for new development.
Chennault consists of a series of massive hangars, 60-plus acres of useable concrete, and hundreds of acres of undeveloped land.
Those on site include Northrop Grumman, LandLocked Aviation Services, Citadel Completions, Louisiana Millwork (Masonite), Million Air, the Louisiana National Guard and more.
The latest addition is a newly built $4 million air cargo pass-through facility, ready for a tenant partner.
Some 1,000 people go to work at Chennault each day repainting aircraft, manufacturing doors and staircases for homes, outfitting luxury jets, and overhauling military aircraft.
Chennault’s strategic location at the center of the Gulf Coast provides access to a wide swath of the southern United States. The park’s infrastructure, incentives, low costs, uncongested airspace, and ample room for expansion make it an ideal site for new development.
Chennault has access to nearby rail, deepwater port and interstate highways.
Tenants benefit from:
• 1.5 million square feet of building/hangar space.
• Low utilities and lease costs.
• The two-mile-long runway.
• An accredited, contracted air traffic control tower.
• 24/7 on-site security and fire protection.
