Service Continues to Grow at Armstrong International
Air service expansion is one of our
top priorities at Armstrong International, and we are pleased to report that
new flights will be arriving soon. One of our fastest growing carriers, Spirit
Airlines, will begin daily service to Los Angeles, California and Atlanta,
Georgia in April. With the addition of these
cities, Spirit will offer non-stop service to eight destinations. The other
non-stop destinations include – Chicago, Dallas, Detroit, Ft. Lauderdale, Houston
and Las Vegas. Spirit Airlines offers
ultra-low fares and a range of optional services for a fee. This allows passengers to choose the travel
options they prefer, such as checking bags, seat assignments, and refreshments.
Spirit currently operates more than 375 daily flights to 56 destinations within
the U.S., Latin America, and the Caribbean onboard a modern and fuel-efficient
all-Airbus fleet. They operate from
Concourse C at Armstrong International. To view all of Spirit Airlines’ flight
options from Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport and to purchase

Another one of our newest airlines is
adding more service as well – Allegiant Air.
Allegiant will launch new flights to Pittsburgh, PA in February. Service will be provided twice weekly out of
Concourse C and expand upon the flights Allegiant currently operates from New
Orleans to Cincinnati, OH; Columbus, OH; Indianapolis, IN; and Orlando-Sanford,
FL. The flights will bring nearly 17,000 additional visitors each year to the
New Orleans area and generate an estimated $15.4 million annually in total
visitor spending. Allegiant’s innovative business model has allowed it to grow
from one plane and one route to offering access to low-cost flights in over 100
cities nationwide, more than any other domestic low-cost carrier. Allegiant passengers
can enjoy unique savings by bundling their air, hotel, car and even activity
and attraction reservations together for less. The company has been named one
of America’s 100 Best Small Companies by Forbes Magazine for five consecutive
years. In 2014, AVIATION WEEK ranked Allegiant the Top-Performing Airline in
North America for the third consecutive year. Flight days, times and the lowest
fares can be found only at www.Allegiant.com.
Our newest air carrier, GLO, is
offering non-stop flights to Little Rock, Arkansas; Memphis, Tennessee; and
Shreveport, Louisiana. GLO is a New Orleans owned and based public charter operator
and is offering fares as low as $99 each way through February. GLO offers a quality alternative to business
and leisure travelers that have been relegated to multi-stop flights and long
drive times to reach these destinations. GLO’s flights are operated by
Corporate Flight Management, Inc. from Concourse B using a 30-passenger Saab
340B aircraft. Each city is served twice daily Monday through Friday and once
daily to each destination on weekends. Tickets
