Flights to New Orleans
Visit the birthplace of jazz
With our flights to New Orleans you’ll soon be swaying to the sweet jazzy melodies of the American South. Once an important port in the slave trade, French-founded New Orleans is as much infused with Afro-Caribbean flair as it is with old European elegance. This strong, mixed heritage seeps through every inch of local life, including the colourful Mardi Gras parades and top-class gastronomy that New Orleans is renowned for. Try crazy Creole fusion dishes or hearty home-cooked Cajun cuisine, then head to Tremé, an original African-American neighbourhood, for some local history.
Explore New Orleans
Walk the ways of the Mississippi or wander the old-world streets of the famed French Quarter, which is packed with beautiful colonial architecture, cast-iron balconies, pretty gardens and cute coffee shops. Of course, New Orleans is also the celebrated birthplace of jazz music and you’ll find live shows aplenty no matter where you go.
When New Orleans finally exhausts you, venture further into fun-loving Louisiana. You can join the party in student town Baton Rouge, get active in the pretty Tunica Hills, explore the region’s rich African-American heritage and Civil War history, or eat your way through the French-speaking villages of Cajun Country.
