Tips

Flights to New Orleans – Only ten feet or so above water level

New Orleans dates back to 1718, founded by a chap called Jean Baptiste La Moyne Sieur de Bienville. What a mouthful. We wonder why he chose this spot… OK, it was a great crossroads for trade, accessible to ships on the east bank of the Mississippi. But the site was – and is – swampy, marshy and generally soggy, only just above sea level. Flights to New Orleans deposit you in a place that’s only about ten feet or so above the water table at the best of times. As the city grew it followed the river’s curve so came to be known as The Crescent City. The bigger it got, the more defences the city needed to keep the river at bay. Hence the complex system of levees designed to protect it against flooding.  

New Orleans Flights – Louis Armstrong airport

Flights to New Orleans land you at Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport, ten miles or so west of the city centre. They’ve been busy renovating the airport recently so you’ll enjoy all sorts of useful stuff to make life more comfortable and less boring while you’re there. There’s free Wi-Fi access so you can always while away your time buying pointless things on ebay or surfing the net. If you’ve hired a car take the I-10 and follow the signs. Many visitors take flights to New Orleans, AKA The Big Easy, to track down some really good jazz. Why ‘Big Easy’? It’s the name of the city’s infamous early twentieth century dance hall.

Flights to New Orleans Zoos, museums, jazz and soul food

You’ll find visitor information services in the West Lobby, West Terminal and East Baggage Claim areas of New Orleans airport. Choose flights to New Orleans for a huge choice of attractions and things to do: zoos, museums, art galleries and even a version of Madam Tussauds, the Musee Conti Wax Museum. Visit in February for the Mardi Gras, or anytime for a trip on the Natchez Steamboat. The New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival kicks off in April every year. And there are theatres, riverfront parks, swamp tours, Marie Laveau’s House of Voodoo and, of course, shed loads of casinos.

Listen to jazz, stroll the riverbanks and take a steamboat cruise. Book your flights to New Orleans here.
