Mayor Landrieu, New Orleans Aviation Board to make special announcement on future of Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport North Terminal

January 15, 2014

NEW ORLEANS, LA TOMORROW, Mayor Mitch Landrieu will join the New Orleans Aviation Board (NOAB) for a special announcement on the future of the Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport. The announcement paves the way for the $826 million construction program that includes a new north terminal.

On December 30, 2013, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) issued a Finding of No Significant Impact/Record of Decision (FONSI/ROD) for the Environmental Assessment completed in connection with the proposed north relocation of the terminal complex at the Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport.  The FONSI/ROD is based on the findings and determinations contained in the Final Environmental Assessment (EA) completed in accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA).  

In April 2013, Mayor Landrieu announced plans to build a brand new, state-of-the-art airport terminal on the north side of current airport property. The announcement came less than two years after the Mayor requested the NOAB to undertake an in-depth and robust analysis of four proposals for the future of the Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport from the airport’s master plan.

Funding for the new terminal project will come from various airport self-generated funds along with federal and state aviation grants. The City of New Orleans will not be funding any part of the new terminal project.
