MSY New airport terminal opening delayed until fall 2019
LINK

quote:

According to airport officials, the new terminal is 95 percent complete, and the added cushion of time will give locals time to adjust to the new interstate access routes. The silver lining? Anyone who enjoys flying in and out of the campy, domed arrival hall at New Orleans’ circa-1959 airport will be able to savor the experience for a little while longer.

I was on Loyola at Vets last week, and I wondered how in the hell the terminal was going to open when the damn access road still isn't finished. Not surprised in the least at this latest delay.

The existing terminal is in terrible shape--I encountered dilapidated bathrooms, barely working drinking fountains, and an overall air of "who cares, it's closing" from staff.

Ugh. Was really looking forward to being out of the third world. Rumor was August 2019 but this says "fall" so who really knows.

Something that will never happen in NOLA.

Said to myself last week when I flew out that there was no way it would be ready for May opening.

Will the new airport have anymore direct flights compared to the current direct flights out of MSY?

Umm. Yes.... Drinking fountains with bottle fill spouts are in most airports (except NOLA). Reducing plastic waste.....look around next time you fly. Plenty of people flying with reusable water bottles these days.

I bring own water bottle and if you ask a barkeep they will fill it for free if you've had a drink

I have a flight out of MSY in May, was worried I would have to learn a new parking, and terminal routine, so this is actually good news for me.

Im not sure if an airline offered me free airfare from MSY to anywhere in the contiguous US for Thanksgiving I would use it. That place is going to be an absolute zoo.
