The primary airport for New Orleans is Louis Armstrong International Airport; this is located in Kenner – a suburb of New Orleans. Passengers from the UK can travel directly between airports including London Heathrow, Manchester, Newcastle, Edinburgh and Glasgow to Louis Armstrong International Airport.

There are also limo hire services available.
Business travellers looking for attractions to visit whilst in New Orleans will see that the Central Business District of the city is not a ghost town after work; evenings in the Central Business District bring free concerts to the Lafayette Square where people will play jazz. There is also numerous night-time performances from cabarets and smaller theatres, as well as the Orpheum – the Louisiana Philharmonic Orchestra’s home. New Orleans is also home to the House of Blues and Museum of Art; the House of Blues is an entertainment company featuring contemporary jazz and blues acts – the ‘Music Hall’ and ‘Mississippi Delta-Style’ are adjacent to each other making them a perfect place for business travellers who are looking for food and entertainment, to visit. New Orleans is the best place for travellers wanting to try some new delicacies – some dishes you will find include crawfish, gumbo, Muffaletta and beignets.
Business travellers should be aware that there are times when a car can be more a hindrance than a help when visiting New Orleans. The Central Business District, French Quarter and casinos have very little remote parking – and when it is available it is difficult to find, expensive or reserved as valet parking. There are, however, a number of streetcars available making navigating around New Orleans a quick and convenient experience. Walking is also suggested as it is easy to move around the French Quarter and the Central Business District – however, after dark, it is best to hail a taxi.
Some of the hotels which are the most recommended for business class travellers include the W French Quarter which has been transformed as part of a multimillion dollar renovation. All the guest rooms have been redesigned to emulate the soul of New Orleans and it is located in the French Quarter within waking distance of Jackson Square – an iconic spot for boutiques, bistros and jazz. An alternative is the Harrah’s New Orleans; this is located right in the heart of the city and provides guests with wonderful views of the city’s skyline and the Mississippi River.
