Acadiana Regional Airport may get Houston flight

Posted: Updated:
NEW IBERIA, La. (KNOE 8 News/AP) - Iberia Parish officials are fine-tuning a plan to add commercial round-trip air service from Acadiana Regional Airport to Houston for oil and gas workers and others by next summer.
    
Some $1 million has been allocated for taxiway improvements and another $750,000 will pay for building a passenger terminal at the airport, located just west of New Iberia.
  
Bill Miller, president of the six-member Iberia Parish Airport Authority, says the plan is a response to demand by oil and gas service businesses located near the U.S. 90 stretch from Lafayette Parish to New Iberia, including companies at the Port of Iberia.
