Getting to New Orleans

Planes, trains and automobiles — these are all effective ways to get to the Crescent City. With more than 16 airlines offering more than 56 nonstop routes, Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport (MSY) makes travel easy, and this has only gotten better with the new terminal that opened in 2019.

Our logistics team has already started working with shuttle services to provide transportation from the airport to downtown and vice versa. More information about how to schedule this service, costs, etc., will be available as we get closer to the event. In the meantime we encourage you to visit New Orleans & Company’s website to learn more about getting to and around the city.
