Mardi Gras

Mardi Gras. Two little words, one big party – and a ton of beads.

Air Charter Advisors can book your private jet charter to (NEW) Lakefront Airport just in time for the party. Or if you’d prefer, we can arrange your private flight to land at (MSY) Louis Armstrong International Airport in Jefferson Parrish, located just 20 minutes from the French Quarter.

From there, you’ll free to let loose and enjoy all the delights and debauchery the Big Easy has to offer.

What is Mardi Gras?

Also known as Shrove Tuesday or Fat Tuesday, the first Mardi Gras was held in New Orleans, and the celebration originally landed in the United States in the late 18th century, when French explorers landed 60 miles south of New Orleans on the eve of the holiday, and declared the site “Point du Mardi Gras”.

The festival cerebrates the final day of decadence and debauchery before landing on Ash Wednesday, when everyone behaves themselves during lent.

The parades run for days leading up to Mardi Gras, with St. Charles Avenue the most popular route for parade watchers; each parade is called a “Krewe”, and each krewe features a different theme and story.

New Orleans is celebrated as one of the most influential cities in music, and the parades and celebrations of Mardi Gras pay homage to the traditional jazz and big-band brass the city is famous for.
