A $1.3 billion terminal was opened at New Orleans International Airport

November 16, 2019


After seven years of design, planning and delays, the $1.3 billion terminal was opened at New Orleans International Airport.

The 35-gate, new 927,000-square-foot, light-filled terminal’s architecture form a gentle curves of the Mississippi River and immerses visitors in the culture, geography, and history of New Orleans.

The three-story central atrium includes a jazz garden that will feature live music and a large glass-sealed image of oak trees in the morning fog taken by a local photographer is adjacent to the main elevator.

Designed for the maximum convenience of passengers, a single security checkpoint serves both foreign and domestic flights and adapts to accommodate large tourist crowds during special events like Jazz Fest and Mardi Gras.

“The opening of the new terminal at Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport is a major milestone for the City of New Orleans and for our region,” said New Orleans Mayor LaToya Cantrell in a statement.
