Hammond Regional Airport
My name is David Lobue. I'm the director of the Hammond Northshore Regional Airport in Hammond, Louisiana. The economic impact of the Hammond Northshore Regional Airport is estimated in the millions. Right now, we have an airport that averages around 10,000 operations a month. This puts it as the #1 general aviation airport in the state of Louisiana.
The Hammond Northshore Regional Airport is uniquely positioned on the northshore of Lake Pontchartrain as the airport with the most room for expansion, the longest runways, and the most capacity for growth. Being at a transportation crossroads or a transportation Nexus of rail and interstate travel in the airport that is uniquely positioned like the Hammond airport is, it has the ability to be a real catalyst for the community for ecomonic growth.
