Tips for Summer Travel

 

The Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport (MSY) is expecting a busy summer for travel. During peak periods from 5 a.m. to 7 a.m. and 3 p.m. to 6 p.m., passengers can expect longer wait times at the ticket counters and checkpoints. 

 

To make your travel journey as seamless as possible, follow these 5 summer travel tips:

 

Make a travel plan. Ask yourself these important questions: When should I be at the airport? How am I getting there? Do I need to reserve parking? Do I have all of my travel documents? Think through your entire journey from your house to your plane. Planning this out will help ensure a smooth travel experience.

 

Arrive Early. Arrive at least two hours before your scheduled departure. If you are traveling internationally, give yourself three hours. Expect longer lines at the ticket counters and checkpoints.

 

 

Reserve Parking Online. You can reserve parking in your preferred facility online at park.flymsy.com at least 24 hours before. Reservations are available in all four parking facilities: Short-Term, Long-Term, Surface Lot, and Economy.

 

No parking reservations, no problem. Check parking space availability on our website flymsy.com, before traveling to the airport to save time by driving to the parking facility with open spaces. Valet parking is also available.

 

Avoid the ticket counter when parking in the Economy Garage near the former terminal at 900 Airline Drive. Baggage Check-In is available for American Airlines, Delta Air Lines, Spirit Airlines, and United Airlines. A shuttle departs from the garage frequently and guarantees your shuttle ride will be 15 minutes or less. If the shuttle ride exceeds 15 minutes, passengers receive a voucher for 50 percent off parking fees.

Pack Smart. Visit tsa.gov to learn what to pack in your carry-on and checked baggage. Follow the 3-1-1 rule for baggage brought through the checkpoint. Liquids, aerosols, gels, creams, and pastes are allowed in carry-on bags if each item is 3.4 ounces or less and placed in one quart-sized bag. Each passenger is limited to one quart-size bag.

 

Need Assistance? Send us a message to @flyneworleans on X or Instagram or @MSYAirport on Facebook Messenger, and we will get back to you as soon as possible (social media is monitored weekdays 8 a.m. – 4 p.m.). Call AVCOM 504-303-7500 for assistance 24/7.

 

For specific questions about the checkpoint, contact TSA by sending a text directly to 275-872 (“AskTSA”) on any mobile device or over social media by sending a message to @AskTSA on X or Facebook Messenger.

 

For information regarding your flight, contact your airline.
