Shuttles to Louis Armstrong International Airport

Dear Loyola community,

We are cautiously optimistic that the Louis Armstrong International Airport in New Orleans may begin having more flights departing from the city as the week progresses. Each airline is making its own decisions and determining flights on a limited basis.

For those of you travelling home to be with your families, we will be running shuttles to the airport daily, at noon and 3 p.m. Thursday, September 2; at noon and 3 p.m. on Friday, September 3, and hourly from 9 to 12 p.m. and at 3 p.m. on Saturday.

Please do not book a space on the shuttle until you book your flight. Please do not travel to the airport without confirming your flight.

You must arrive at the first floor of West Road Garage to check-in for the shuttle. If taking one of these shuttles, please schedule your flight at least two-and-a-half hours after the shuttle is scheduled to leave, to allow time for check in and departure. The airports and airlines are likely to be crowded with people trying to leave the city after extended closure.

Loyola University Police Department will be driving the shuttles. Everyone will be required to show a Loyola ID and wear masks on the shuttle.

If you would like to reserve a place on one of these shuttles to the airport please email Please include your date and time of bus departure, full name, contact info and CWID.

GENTLE REMINDER: Campus is largely empty, phone service is spotty, and essential staff are on the move. The best way to contact Loyola with any questions is to reach out to, where our communications staff are monitoring and responding.

Thank you.
