New Orleans Lakefront Airport, originally named “Shushan Airport” honoring Orleans Levee Board President Abe Shushan, was formally dedicated in February, 1934. Commercial airline flight operations actually began on the field in late 1933. Shushan Airport was the first combined land and sea air terminal complex to operate in the country. Its design later influenced the construction of more famous air terminals including those at New York La Guardia, Washington D.C. (Reagan National Airport), and Houston (Hobby), among others. Shushan Airport was renamed New Orleans Airport in 1940. In 1964, following contemporary renovations to the terminal building, the word “Lakefront” was formally added to the name to better emphasize its strategic location and support of business and general aviation in the City of New Orleans and South Louisiana – Read More / Download Full Brochure
