Assistance for International Travelers
An official letter of invitation is available through the online registration system. Contact the American Consulate in your country to review the current regulations for travel to the United States. Please begin the visa application process as early as possible. Information is available on the U.S. Department of State website at www.travel.state.gov.
Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport is located 11 miles from downtown New Orleans. Many companies provide taxicab service at Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport. If you need a taxi, simply follow the signs leading to the Transportation Plazas. A customer service representative will place you with the first available taxi, unless you specify a particular taxicab company.
New Orleans Regional Transit Authority (RTA) buses and streetcars wind through every neighborhood of the Crescent City. To see RTA fare and pass options, visit AACR.org/RTA.
Four streetcar lines run through some of the most iconic areas of New Orleans—the historic St. Charles Avenue line, the Canal Street line to Cemeteries and City Park, the Riverfront line, and the newest line, the Rampart-St. Claude Avenue line.
The Paratransit option is a shared ride service designed to help customers who are unable to use regular transit services due to a disability or disabling health condition.
Jefferson Transit (JeT) and St. Bernard Parish Rapid Urban Transit (SBURT) are public transit systems that operate independently of the RTA. Riders can transfer to either system or into the RTA system from either system. RTA, JeT, and SBURT all have separate fare and pass options that are not transferable to other systems. To see JeT fare and pass options, visit AACR.org/JeT. To see SBURT fare and pass options, visit AACR.org/SBURT.
The Airport Shuttle is the official ground transportation for the Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport. 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.
Look for the Airport Shuttle parked in front of your hotel/departure location approximately 5 to 7 minutes before scheduled departure time. Shuttles run every day of the year, with vans departing approximately every 30 minutes (except between 2:00 a.m. and 3:30 a.m.).
You can purchase ticket(s) at www.airportshuttleneworleans.com or in person at the Airport Shuttle Ticket Desk, located on the ground level of the airport across from the baggage claim area, or you can make a reservation by calling 866-596-2699. For Departure Reservations (from downtown New Orleans back to the airport), please call 504-522-3500 or 866-596-2699 no later than 24 hours prior to your flight.
