NEW IBERIA, La. (AP) - The Iberia Parish Airport Authority has announced the contract award for an Acadiana Regional Airport passenger terminal that will be named after a decorated New Iberia fighter pilot.

The Advocate (https://bit.ly/1J2VACs ) reports Executive Director Jason Devillier announced Tuesday that E.L. Habetz Builders Inc. will build the terminal for $740,700. The airport authority will also pay an extra $78,500 for items including a canopy, terminal barriers and furniture for the terminal.
