Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport

Press Room

Runways Open at MSY - 1/17/2018 -

At approximately noon today, the Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport reopened its runways. The airlines were notified that they may resume operations, however there are several other factors involved in determining an airline’s timing to resume scheduled flights. Therefore, we continue to urge travelers to check on their flight status with airlines directly before heading to the airport.

Because the area will be under a Freeze Warning again tonight, airport officials will continue to monitor the runway surface and take any necessary precautions to protect the safety of passengers and employees.

Additionally, the elevated departures ramp remains closed at this time because of ice accumulation. All traffic is being diverted to the bottom arrivals ramp.
