Armstrong airport soars with new airline adding 12 flights per day
ExpressJet Airlines will begin service at the Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport this summer, offering non-stop service to Austin, San Antonio, Kansas City, Mo., Birmingham, Jacksonville, Fl., and Raleigh-Durham with 12 flights per day.
This announcement comes at a critical time when the city and region are trying to grow the tourism economy back to pre-Katrina levels. With the new flights, Armstrong will have 121 daily departures to 38 destinations, bringing the facility to 75% of flights offered before the hurricane.
“Visiting or doing business in the N.O. area just got a little easier,” said Chairman of the New Orleans Aviation Board Dan Packer.
Steve Perry, President of the New Orleans Metropolitan Convention and Visitors Bureau stated, “This announcement signals another crucial and positive milestone toward our city and our industry's continued recovery.”
ExpressJet will bring the total airlines serving Armstrong International to 10 air carriers.
