Things to do in New Orleans
The most culturally diverse and festive city on the Gulf Coast, there are several different languages and regional dialects found there, and all are direct links to Louisiana’s rich history.
Colonized by the French, ceded to the Spanish, and finally sold to the United States, it’s no wonder that NOLA is the most unique American city.
The most popular destination is definitely the French Quarter. It’s super touristy, but there are vendors in the streets selling Hurricanes (a delicious and strong alcoholic beverage) for $3 dollars a pop, so it’s still worth a visit. The whole district has a 1920’s feel to it; jazz music in the streets, parades for any reason you can think of, and effervescent party-goers enjoying the sites (and the booze).
After you’ve sated your nightlife appetite, the rest of The Big Easy awaits you. The whole area is gorgeous enough to get off the street-car at a random stop and just start walking, and you’ll have a great time.
Whether you go for the Cajun cuisine, the antebellum architecture, or the jazz and the bars, private jet travelers will find The Big Easy to be just as great as everyone says. If you’re still planning your itinerary, check out our list of the most popular attractions after your private charter flight.

Business Jet Rentals in New Orleans, Louisiana
New Orleans is home to one of the largest and busiest ports in the world, and is a major hub in the Gulf Coast’s maritime industries. Business jets traveling between New Orleans often carry oil & gas executives, but the city’s strong, diverse economy and vibrant cultural draws business travelers from a variety of industries.
Louisiana is home to many major pipelines, and the state ranks 5th in oil production and eighth in reserves in the United States. A significant portion of the nation’s oil refining and petrochemical production takes place in the region, and New Orleans serves as the corporate home for petroleum and natural gas production, both onshore and offshore.
All of this industry has made the Port of New Orleans the 5th largest in the United States by volume, and 12th overall in terms of total value.
Many major energy companies have operations in the city and its suburbs, including Royal Dutch Shell, Eni and Chevron. Entergy, a nuclear powerplant operator and power utility, is the city’s lone Fortune 500 company.
Several shipbuilding, shipping and logistics firms are also based in metropolitan New Orleans or maintain a large presence around the city, and Folgers operates the largest coffee-roasting plant in the world here.
Despite all of this oil money flowing through the city, New Orleans’ tourist and convention industry accounts for $5.5 billion, or roughly 40 percent of the city’s tax revenues. Heading to a convention in New Orleans? Our team can arrange large cabin airliners for group of 20 to 200 people!
Match the comfort & style of your private flight to NOLA with a luxurious five-star accommodation.
Luxury private jet travelers in New Orleans have more hotel options than they know what to do with. The French Quarter alone has more hotels that most cities, and they’re nicer too.
The hotels in the Crescent City have one thing in common- history. Their architecture and staff attire often hearken back to 1920’s New York. Bellhops clamor to open doors, assist with bags, and maintain an overall sense of luxury.
Stay for a few nights at Le Méridien; with its recent renovations, contemporary architecture, and unrivaled skyline views, it’s the perfect spot for a weekend getaway right in the middle of the French Quarter. If the contemporary Meridien isn’t your cup of tea, or you’d rather stay outside of the French Quarter, keep reading – our air charter team has composed a list of our favorite hotels in the city.
