The Baton Rouge Metro Airport is looking at getting a new addition to the terminal.

"We're in the process right now with negotiating a lease with Bear Brothers," said Ralph Hennessey, assistant director of aviation at BTR. "They're going through their due diligence. We hope to have a contract with them in place in the next to months."

Hennessey said construction could begin at the end of this year or beginning of 2017 with it likely opening in late 2017.
