$650 million expansion planned at N.O. airport


KENNER, La. (AP) - New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu says the city plans to build a new terminal at Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport in suburban Kenner.

The terminal would be on the north side of the existing terminal structure.

Landrieu says officials hope to have the $650 million building open by May 5, 2018 - when the city celebrates the 300th anniversary of its founding.

The airport is owned by the city though it is in neighboring Jefferson Parish. It is governed by a board that includes representatives from parishes surrounding New Orleans. New Orleans was founded as a French colony in 1718.
