Flights Resume At New Orleans Airport

Jan 29, 2014

Flights have resumed on a limited basis in and out of New Orleans' Louis Armstrong International Airport.

Airport spokeswoman Michelle Wilcut said flights started arriving mid-morning on Wednesday, roughly a full day after a blast of winter weather suspended service.

Wilcut said the resumption of service will vary by airline.

The airport typically has roughly 260 daily flights.

New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu advised people headed to the airport to take Airline Drive, also known as U.S. 61, instead of Interstate 10, which is partially closed because of the icy conditions.
