there, one can be rest assured in the ease and convenience of attaining
transportation. As with all U.S. airports, there are multiple rental car stations to choose from and could be easily booked online.
There are also cabs
waiting at the airport doors, ever ready to take on passengers for any

in the Central Business District (CBD). This line will save a walk from
the CBD into the heart of the French Quarter itself.
