Easing Travel in the Big Easy: UAL Debuts New Lounge at MSY

Travelers doing business in New Orleans can nab some down time before a flight at the new United Club in Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport

March 3, 2020

United Airlines unveiled the newest addition to its network of United Club locations with the opening Saturday of a brand-new 6,000-square-foot United Club at Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport. Located in the airport’s brand-new terminal, near gate C7, the club offers customers a wide variety of amenities to work, relax and refresh during their travels.

“Our expansion into New Orleans showcases United’s commitment to transforming the customer experience across all touch points and complements the beautiful new terminal at Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport,” said Alexander Dorow, United’s managing director of premium services. “It’s a fresh location for us to begin our evolution to become more local and reach new audiences.”

Menu highlights in the new club location reflect the destination with inventive twists on regional favorites such as muffuletta sliders with pimento cheese, gumbo and rice, Cajun pepper dip and Creole egg salad. The drink selection includes local staples like Abita Amber beer and Southern Comfort, along with a variety of beer, wine and cocktail options.

The New Orleans United Club features 95 seats, with a variety of seating areas for productivity, privacy and dining. For customers looking to stay connected, the club offers complimentary high-speed Wi-Fi and many power outlets and USB ports.

The New Orleans United Club location is the first United Club to open this year and is part of United’s focus on introducing new United Club locations throughout its network. The company is also working on new United Club locations at Newark Liberty International Airport – to open in 2021 – and Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport, which will open later this year. Construction will also begin on a brand-new and larger United Club location at Daniel K. Inouye International Airport in Honolulu. Additionally, this summer, United will unveil its United Polaris lounge at Washington Dulles International Airport. That location will be the sixth in the United Polaris lounge network.
