Delta moving to New Terminal at New Orleans International Airport (MSY) – May

Earlier today, Delta announced they are moving their Louis Armstrong New Orleans International (MSY) operations from Terminal D to a newly built Terminal C (aka the North Terminal).

The North Terminal is part of the recent $1.2B expansion project undertaken at the airport (and definitely needed). If you’ve ever visited MSY you know there are many parts of this airport that are a bit tired. Glad to hear they are remodeling some portions of it.

The North Terminal is a magnificent undertaking and was designed by Cesar Pelli, a world class architect. The new terminal will host 35 news gates, improved security checkpoints, and unsurprisingly, better concessions.

In their plan, the designers note: “Passengers should feel the spirit of New Orleans in the new terminal through the sights, smells, and sounds that reverberate all the best in our City.” That means music! And…as far as smells go, we hope it’s just the food smells…they can leave the rest of bourbon street smells there… 🙂

The new terminal – and Delta’s operations therein officially open on May 15th – and we can’t wait to see it.

  1. Dak

    Two points of clarification on this:
    1. All passenger carriers will be moving to the new North Terminal. Delta is not special.
    2. The North Terminal is an entirely new building. There will be no renovated portions of the old terminal. It will be dedicated to Cargo, based on the latest reports.
