DALLAS (Aug. 1, 2016) Greyhound today announced it now provides daily service from the Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport as part of its continued expansion in Louisiana. Bus service at the airport is included in Greyhound’s new route between Baton Rouge and Lafayette, allowing customers to have easier access to locations, such as Raceland, Thibodaux, Morgan City, New Iberia and Lafayette, ultimately connecting to Greyhound’s network of more than 3,800 destinations.
“We’re excited to offer service at the Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport,” said Bill Blankenship, chief operating officer, Greyhound Lines, Inc. “This location offers a great benefit for customers, as it provides easy and convenient connectivity for customers who live in communities without access to an airport. It provides the best of both worlds under one roof.”
“By affording citizens’ access to direct transportation to the Airport, this program effectually connects people to the world,” said Iftikhar Ahmad, director of aviation for Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport. “We are pleased that this service returns to South Louisiana. New Orleans and the surrounding communities will surely benefit from this transportation service.”
From the airport, customers can board Greyhound at the glass parabola outside concourse C at door #7. Locations along the route that can be accessed from the airport, include:Baton Rouge: Greyhound Station – 1253 Florida Blvd.
Customers will have access to Greyhound Package Express from the airport as well.
