Baton Rouge Metropolitan Airport , also known as Ryan Field, is a public use airport located four nautical miles (7 km) north of the central business district of Baton Rouge, a city in East Baton Rouge Parish, Louisiana, United States.

The airport was originally Harding Army Air Field during World War II and was used by the United States Army Air Force Technical Service Command as a maintenance and supply base. Today other than the runways, virtually no traces remain of the military installation.
