Today, we know the resilience of New Orleans because of Katrina. We remember the lives of those we lost and the hardships we endured after the storm. On this anniversary, another storm looms off the east coast. Our thoughts and prayers are with those in its path.
In the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, MSY was the busiest airport in the world for 3 days with as many as 3,800 daily flight operations. MSY played a vital role during Katrina, serving as an air evacuation center, storm shelter, hospital, and more.
In the 14 years since Katrina, New Orleans has made a remarkable recovery, and #TheNewMSY terminal opening this fall is a shining symbol that we are charting a path forward toward an even brighter future.
