NEW IBERIA, La. (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.

F. Jason Devillier, airport director, tells The Advocate (http://bit.ly/SpnC0S) he and other Iberia Parish officials hope to have commercial air service to Houston by summer 2015.

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.
