Louis Armstrong New Orleans Airport Website:

MSY Airport History: In1910, daredevil aviator John Mosiant had an accident at the airport and he succumbed to hi injuries. Thereby earlier the airport was named after this stuntman. When the older airport needed expansion and renewal the idea of the new airport arouse. During the 2nd World War it became the Government’s air base. On July 11, 2001, the airport was renamed after jazz musician Louis Armstrong to mark his 100th birthday.

After Morrison Vic Schiro, formal government-sponsored studies were take on to assess the viability of repositioning Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport to a new site, contemporaneous with similar efforts that were ultimately successful in Houston and Dallas. The officials even recommended a site in New Orleans East. Then in 1970s it was decided that the current airport should be expanded instead, which lead to the building of a lengthened main terminal ticketing area, an airport access road linking the terminal to I-10, and the present-day Concourses A and B. New Orleans Mayor Sidney Barthelemy, in office from 1986 to 1994, later again incorporated the idea of building a new international airport for the city, with consideration given to other sites in New Orleans East, as well as on the Northshore in suburban St. Tammany Parish. Only a couple months before Hurricane Katrina's landfall, Mayor Ray Nagin again planned a new airport for New Orleans, this time to the west in Montz, Louisiana. These initiatives too couldn’t reach their results like before.

The population of the city is about 1,189,981 which is the 46th highest in U.S. Known for its exquisite French Creole architecture and it high tolerance for cross culture and multilingual heritage, New Orleans is named after Philippe d Orleans, Regent of France. It is also known for its delicious cuisine, jazz music and Mardi gras. New Orleans is located in southeastern Louisiana, across the Mississippi River. The boundaries of the city and Orleans Parish are coterminous The city and parish are bounded by the St. Bernard to the east, parishes of St. Tammany to the north, Plaquemines to the south and Jefferson to the south and west.

New Orleans History: Jean-Baptiste Le Moyne, the directors of the French Mississippi Company found New Orleans on the land occupied by the Chitimacha on May 7, 1718. The city was then titled after the Duke of Orleans Philippe d’Orleans. Napoleon in 1803 sold the territory to United States in the Louis Purchase. Then the city grew rapidly with the incursion of Africans, Americans, Creoles, Irish, Germans, and French. In 1860 it was the country’s fifth largest city and had reached it zenith in all the fields. The city is prone to flooding and its vulnerability was completely known in the late 20th century. Most of the inhabitants of the city had to evacuate due to the threat of Hurricane Katrina and had to be away until Hurricane Rita struck the city.

New Orleans Geography: Located at on the banks of the Mississippi River, approximately 105 miles (169 km) upriver from the Gulf of Mexico New Orleans covers a total area of 350.2 square miles out of which 180.56 square miles is land. The city is situated in the west banks of the Mississippi River and Mississippi River Delta on the east and south of Lake Pontchartrain. The riverside is depicted by ridges and hollows. New Orleans lies on natural levees or high ground along the Mississippi River. This was one of the main reasons for the replacement of Mobile as the capital of French Louisiana to New Orleans. They made these changes as New Orleans had an extra factor of inland location. New Orleans was originally settled on the natural levees or high ground, along the. The United States Army Corps of Engineers had constructed floodwalls and man-made levees along a much larger geographic footprint that included previous marshland and swamp according to the Flood Control Act of 1965.

According to studies conducted more than half of the city is below sea level and people are more crowded in the high level areas. The city’s average elevation is currently between one and two feet (0.5 m) below sea level, with some portions of the city as high as 20 feet (6 m) at the base of the river levee in Uptown and others as low as 7 feet (2 m) below sea level in the farthest reaches of Eastern New Orleans. Hurricane Katrina in 2005 brought about disastrous failure of the federally designed and built levees, flooding 80% of the city. The coastal erosion in the city is one reason for the failure of the designs.
