NATCHITOCHES, La. (AP) - After two years of work, the Natchitoches Regional Airport has a master plan for the next 20 years.

KTBS-TV reports (https://bit.ly/1hFtGbg ) the airport commission meets Monday to discuss the plan which was recently approved by the Federal Aviation Administration.

The airport was established in 1940 and has gone through several changes in its 74 years. The new master plan recommends aviation facilities that are necessary for potential growth over the next 20 years.

One possible project would be a runway extension. Airport Development Group, Inc, the master plan consultant, says completing that project would allow the regaional airport to bring in bigger planes and, in turn, bring in big business.

The Airport Commission will meet to discuss the plan before presenting it to the city council April 14.
