Spending the night at the airport

New Orleans airport is open 24 hours a day and is a comfortable and safe place where to spend the night if you have an early flight or if your flight is delayed. Keep in mind that once the security controls close for the night, you will have to remain in the public area. The air conditioning can be strong, so it is best to have something warm.

Remember that some of the nearby hotels can provide you with shuttle service if you book in advance.
