The Lafayette Airport Commission is working with Bell Helicopter on a process for the company to leave its building at the airport.

Last month, the state economic commission terminated its contract with Bell Helicopter, citing a lack of performance.

Airport officials are already looking towards the future of the property.

“Bell Helicopter has indicated that they will be coming back to the airport with some proposals with some tenants to move into that area,” said Executive Director Steven Picou.
