Louis Armstrong International Airport will process a record number of travelers for Super Bowl XLVII and Mardi Gras 2013


New Orleans, LA - In preparation for football's biggest sporting event, the Louis Armstrong International Airport will process a record number of travelers for Super Bowl XLVII.

Over 500 Greater New Orleans Sport Foundation volunteers and 100 Airport Employees are stationed throughout the airport to accommodate the thousands of travelers and fans arriving throughout Super Bowl Weekend. Arriving passengers will be treated to a special welcome by volunteers and Airport staff. In addition, New Orleans ambassadors will be stationed at each concourse.

The Louis Armstrong International Airport, on average, processes 15,000 travelers per day and will triple to 42,000 travelers per day in advance of the Super Bowl and Mardi Gras 2013.

The airport has also enhanced its operations to ensure each guest experiences a New Orleans style arrival.

Fans, tourists and Super Bowl guests will be treated to a few new attractions and enhancements:

  • Additional TSA passenger and baggage screening capacity
  • Live music daily from various local and regional artists such as: Jason Butler, Stooges Brass Band, Christina Perez and Pinettes.
  • New Orleans VooDoo Themed Greeters for all fans
  • Additional Super Bowl kiosks specifically for fans to grab a snack or purchase Super Bowl merchandise
  • Upgraded advertising monitors, charging stations and ClearVision TV programming at all gates
  • New Consolidated Rental Car Facility, alleviating the need for shuttle buses
  • New Ground Transportation message signs to ease traffic flow

"We are pulling out all of the stops to ensure travelers have the best experience and, it begins as soon as travelers arrive," says Airport Aviation Director Iftikhar Ahmad. "We are seeking to provide a memorable guest service experience for all New Orleans travelers."

The Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport has undergone one-third of a billion dollars in renovations including but not limited to: consolidation of all rental car operations, expansion of Concourse D, improved lighting in the terminal, unifying artistic elements, new restaurants and stores and an updated baggage claim.
