Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport

Press Room

Boil Water Advisory Issued for MSY - 1/18/2018 -

Late Wednesday evening, the Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport began experiencing low water pressure as a result of freezing weather conditions, and this morning, Jefferson Parish issued a precautionary Boil Water Advisory for our area.

The Airport is still experiencing low water pressure and is taking necessary safety measures for our passengers. At this time, one restroom is open in the pre-security lobby and the other restrooms in the terminal are closed. Portable toilets were placed at the entrance of the Airport for passengers to use. Food and beverage options are also limited in the terminal, and the heating system may be affected due to the decreased water pressure.

The runways at the Airport remain open and commercial flight operations are continuing. Travellers should plan ahead and check with their airline for the most up-to-date flight information. Passengers are encouraged to check their route to the airport before getting on the roadways since many roads are still closed due to icy conditions.

Airport staff is continuing to monitor the situation in the terminal and will take necessary actions to mitigate passenger inconvenience.
