Super Bowl bound? The New Orleans Airport is ready

Going to New Orleans for the Super Bowl?

Chances are you’ll be flying in and arriving at Louis Armstrong-New Orleans International Airport (MSY). And if you haven’t been there for a while, you may be surprised.  As part of a $300 million modernization project finished just in time for the big game – and all those visitors – the airport now has several new concessions, including a New Orleans Saints store, and a nice variety of local brand restaurants.

Look for Dooky Chase’s (Parabola Lobby), Ye Olde College Inn (Concourse D), Copeland’s Cheesecake Scoops (Concourse D), Wow Wingery (D), Copeland’s Gourmet Kitchen (C), Le Petit Bistro (B), Zatarians (B), Praline Connection (B), Popeye’s Chicken & Biscuit (Terminal), West Beignet (Parabola Lobby) and Lucky Dog – on all concourses.

The airport also has a special Super Bowl section on its website outlining some of the special treats they have in store for visitors and some advice for making your way to and through the airport before, during and after game time.
