In August 2005, thousands of travellers booked flights to Louisiana to help rebuild the state after Hurricane Katrina’s devastating effects, and provided homes for those who lost everything in the hurricane. The Louisiana spirit prevailed and today, the state and its famous town New Orleans continue to thrive thanks to visitors on Louisiana flights.

Visitors booking flights to Louisiana head south for the fantastic food, outstanding music, and Louisiana hospitality, but there’s more to Louisiana than the French Quarter and Bourbon Street. Nature lovers can find cheap flights to Louisiana during the eight-month hunting season. Rent a bike and tour plantation country, or find a fishing spot at one of Louisiana’s 150 lakes, bayous, streams, or wetlands.

Whether the flight to Louisiana lands you in the heart of New Orleans or hiking in the outskirts of the Gulf Coast, any trip to the Bayou State is an awesome experience.

Mardi Gras is the final blowout on Fat Tuesday. Travellers looking for flights to Louisiana during Mardi Gras need to plan ahead and book Louisiana flights and hotel accommodations in advance.

Getting around Louisiana

Regional airports serve the state, there is train service via New Orleans and Lafayette, and buses connect the larger and smaller towns. Two major highways cross the state and another runs north-south. Driving is a great way to see the state, especially regions like Cajun country and northern Louisiana.

For city destinations, walking is usually the best way to see the sights. New Orleans’ attractions, accommodations, and events are within walking distance of each other. Of course, at least one mule-drawn carriage ride would be fun. There is also a public transportation system with the RTA buses, streetcars and trolleys, and the riverboats. In fact, once you have arrived in New Orleans, not only do you not need a car, parking can be expensive and hard to come by.

Baton Rouge has local bus service. The best way to explore Natchitoches, setting for the film Steel Magnolias, is on foot, but getting around Lafayette requires either a car or taxis. Shreveport has taxis, buses, and shuttles.
