Hammond Airport Expects Busy Super Bowl Week

Dec 24, 2012

City Administrator Pete Panepinto says Hammond's Northshore Airport is getting ready for the NFL's Super Bowl, set for Feb. 3 in New Orleans.

Mayor Mayson Foster tells The Advocate that the airport expects to be the third-busiest in Louisiana during Super Bowl week, handling more than 100 aircraft.

Only Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport in Kenner and Baton Rouge Metro Airport are expected handle more aircraft during that period as visitors pour into the state for the NFL's championship game, he said.
