So with the new and improved terminal
opening up at Louis Armstrong International Airport (KMSY) I figured I’d make a topic about it including some links to guide you to the news updates and pictures of the airport!
New Orleans has a very unique airport terminal right now! Come May 15, 2019, it will be even better! They will ditch the old terminal south of runway 29 and make an overnight move to the brand new North Terminal featuring 3 concourses and 35+ gates! Plus lots of great newer age concessions! And oce you have gone through one of the 17 lane TSA Check Point, you’ll have access to all concourses!
The airport will eventually hold an on-site hotel! Keep in mind, this won’t cone right as the terminal opens, but will follow soon after!
As for the south terminal… I’ve heard different things as to what they’ll use it for or what they’ll do with it. The most recent news I’ve heard about it is that they will demolish the already vacant concourse A, and do the same with concourse B and possibly concourse C (still determining Concourse C I believe). The newer concourse D section of the airport will probably remain standing and be used as a charter service terminal or something like that.
Below is the most recent news article with pictures and map of the old south terminal and the new north terminal
