Here's some additional information on Baton Rouge Metropolitan Airport, sourced from Wikipedia:

Baton Rouge Metropolitan Airport is relatively small for a city and metro area of its size due mainly to its close proximity to the New Orleans Armstrong International Airport. Despite aggressive advertising campaigns encouraging passengers to utilize the airport, load factors were low (below 800,000 passengers per year) and fares were among the highest in the region.

In the wake of Hurricane Katrina, and its ensuing increase in Baton Rouge's (temporary and permanent) population; BTR saw its destination portfolio expanded dramatically. New services were initiated to Cincinnati, New York (both Newark, New Jersey and LaGuardia Airport), Chicago-O'Hare, Denver, Washington-Reagan, St. Louis, and Orlando. All such services were withdrawn by 2008, and the airport returned to its longstanding status quo of four destinations.
