Shreveport Regional Airport Car Rental

Shreveport Airport Basics.....

The Shreveport Regional Airport is considered a small-hub, commercial airport, serving five locations - Dallas, Memphis, Houston, Orlando, Las Vegas and Destin.  Airlines that service these areas currently include Delta, Allegiant (Becoming a Low Cost Power), Continental, American and Vision Airlines, providing service to Destin, Florida.  The Shreveport Regional served about one-quarter of one million passengers in 2010, about the same as it did in the 2009 year.  

Car Rental at the Shreveport Regional.....


For a smallish airport, there seems to be a fairly well-represented lineup of car rental companies.  Avis, Budget, Enterprise, Hertz, National and Thrifty service car rental passengers out of the airport.  Car rental desks are situated on the South side of the new terminal.  All desks are near the baggage claim area.

The actual cars sit in a lot not far from the terminal.  It is a relatively short walk from the terminal to the actual car lot.

Each company is a respected player in the car rental market and should provide any customer a quality vehicle at a reasonable price.  Use our booking engine to find out more.

When returning your vehicle, remember to fill up before you get back.  This will save you some cash on fuel prices.  There are several convenience stores on Monkhouse Dr. before returning to the airport.  These include a Monkhouse Citgo, a Kangaroo Express and an Exxon, all within one mile of the Shreveport Regional.

Airport Amenities.....

Because of the small footprint of the Shreveport Regional, it's unrealistic to ask much of the airport in the way of amenities.  There is a JDDA bookstore/newstore offering just that.  Reading material, beverages and snacks constitute the bulk of sales out of this store.  There is also a Lagniappe Restaurant, serving not only a pretty thorough breakfast, but also a little bit of local color, namely Louisiana food.  You can also pick up a sandwich, some salad, and maybe a hamburger as you prepare yourself for the flight out of town.  The restaurant is open from 5 am to 7 pm, every day of the week.

There's also some pretty decent artwork, at least from 'artnicks' that visit the facility.  Late in 1990, a local committee asked the airport brass to put together a showing of artwork to Independence Bowl visitors coming thru the airport.  The project went very well and fro there, the show has continued to grow.  In 2007, over 2,000 folks showed up to enjoy the latest "ArtPort" event.
