KENNER, LA (WVUE) -

Plans for a new terminal at Louis Armstrong International Airport just took another step forward.

The Kenner City Council unanimously approved the conditional use application for construction of the North Terminal and related improvements.

The application had to be approved before any construction permits could be authorized.

According to the application, the new terminal will be 780,000 square feet with two concourses and facilities.

It will be built in a vacant area on the north side of the current runway and is slated for completion in 2018.

In the old terminal, existing concourses A, B & C will be demolished. The plans call for concourse D and two existing parking garages to remain. It will be used for general aviation, cargo and corporate offices.

Airport authorities expect the $650 million project to boost the number of airlines and flights out of New Orleans.
