On Tuesday, the Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport reopened to scheduled passenger air and cargo service. Over the past two weeks, the airport has served as a center for rescue and humanitarian relief efforts, with more than 30,000 survivors departing the city on commercial and military aircraft. All commercial flights will operate from Concourses A and B, while Concourses C and D will continue to support evacuation and rescue operations.

Southwest Florida International Airport, in Fort Myers, Fla., opened its new, $438 million terminal on Sept. 9. The 28-gate terminal replaces the old 17-gate terminal, which now is closed and eventually will be torn down.
