LOUIS ARMSTRONG NEW ORLEANS INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT
New Orleans, Louisiana
- Completion Date: 2019
The Airport has launched a $993.7 million capital program involving the construction of a new world class terminal and related facilities on the north side of Airport property. The capital program includes construction of the North Terminal Project, enabling projects such as the airfield lighting vault relocation and FAA navigational aids relocations, construction of a storm water pump station, and a new on-airport roadway system. Other projects included in the capital program, which will be funded by third parties, include an aircraft fuel hydrant system, and a flyover interchange access from I-10.
The North Terminal has thirty-five (35) airline gates. Passenger experience will be improved with a consolidated checkpoint offering greater ease and efficiency for passengers going through security and an in-line baggage system where passengers will just drop off their checked baggage at the ticket counters. Other amenities include an adjacent 2,190 space parking garage and surface parking, concessions located down the center of the concourse to allow passengers to see their gate while enjoying a taste of New Orleans or picking up that last minute souvenir. Passengers should feel the spirit of New Orleans in the North Terminal through the sights, smells, and sounds that reverberate all the best in our City. The North Terminal is scheduled to open February 2019.
