New Orleans FBO opens

Million Air New Orleans recently became the first FBO at Lakefront Airport to officially reopen its doors in the wake of Hurricane Katrina, which devastated the Louisiana/Mississippi coast in late August. The FBO set up 2,100 square feet of modular office space, installed new skidded fuel tanks and purchased new fuel trucks. The airport received a $6.8 million grant from the FAA to replace damaged signs and buy generators, as well as to reinforce the sea wall on the north end of the airport’s boundaries. The FBO expects to break ground on a new facility in January.
