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.

Where to rest: The public area of the terminals has comfortable couches and recliners. In addition, it is quiet most of the night and lights are not very bright. In concourse D you will find a VIP lounge which you can access by paying, but it is closed at night. Remember that some of the nearby hotels can provide you with a shuttle service if you book in advance.
