The Airport Shuttle, the official ground transportation for the Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport, will get you where you’re going in New Orleans quickly and safely.
Look for Airport Shuttle signage right outside the baggage area. The vehicles are white with yellow "Airport Shuttle" lettering on the side.
Airport Shuttle service is available to and from Downtown and Uptown New Orleans hotels, the French Quarter, the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center and the Cruise Ship Terminals.
