Frequently Asked Questions

Duty free shopping is when you can purchase goods that have had the duty/tax (usually taxes like import, VAT, and sales tax) waivered by the government, therefore reducing the prices that you would normally expect to pay in a standard shop or website. Duty free shops are usually found at airports or sea terminals, but you can also sometimes purchase duty free goods during international flights or on cruises.

Anyone travelling internationally (between two different countries) is eligible to purchase duty free items.

The term 'duty' refers to the tax that you pay if you bring a product from one country to another. i.e. if you bought some perfume in the United Kingdom, and then flew to Germany you might have to pay tax in both countries. Most governments do not charge the duty on products bought when you are leaving that country, which means that the customer doesn't have to pay the tax twice. This usually only applies when you are leaving the country, i.e. it is for export purposes only.

As the price for items bought in duty free shops often have the duty taken off the RRP, it can make them a lot cheaper than if you bought the goods in a normal shop. However, there are usually limits on how much you can buy on your trip, and these limits will vary from country to country, and also vary from item to item (i.e. there will be different limits on alcohol and cigarettes).

The most popular items in duty free shops are usually the products that are most heavily taxed, i.e. alcohol, perfumes, and tobacco. Duty free inventories will vary from country to country, and also from airport to airport. In larger airports, you may even find different prices in the numerous shops - remember it's always best to shop around! Make sure you check our database to see all the shops at each airport, and then you can invesigate the prices at each one.

Sadly, you can't just turn up at a duty free shop with several empty suitcases and fill them up with goodies! Restrictions will be in place, and these can vary from country to country. You will only be allowed to buy certain amounts of different types of products. Tobacco, alcohol, and perfumes are usually the products that are most likely to be subject to the stricter allowances. Make sure you check whilst purchasing, or else you run the risk of your items being confiscated upon arrival at your destination's customs.

No. Duty free is only available to travellers who are flying from one country to another country.

Yes. Many duty free shops will allow you to pre-order any purchases online before your journey. You will need your boarding pass and passport when you pick the items up from the airport shop.

New Orleans Louis Armstrong Airport Reviews

★★★★☆
This field reminds me a lot of SAT. Might have been the same designer.
- Darryl Roach

★★★☆☆
Försenad 6 timmar skadade hela resan,och ett plan var ivägen när vi skulle landa.......USCH!!!! Min värsta flygning
- Anders Anborg

★★★★☆
Parts of it are nice, and show off that Cajun flair. Most of it, though, is pretty meh.
- Chris Brummond

★★★☆☆
Terminal A was pathetic! No access to info and public transportation at the first place.
- Anamitra Ghatak

★★★☆☆
This place really needs help! You begin your trip with a 5 mile hike in the Louisiana heat, humidity and bugs to/from the car rental area where you deal with some of the rudest people in the country. THEN, you get inside and have about 4 places to eat and get a beer! Unless you like Cajun food, you will be SOL! Not to mention, you will pay $9.50 for a 12 ounce plastic cup of warm draft beer!
- Matt Harmon

★☆☆☆☆
The city of New Orleans should be ashamed of this airport. It's a pretty outdated and sad looking place. The wifi is not the best and if you're stuck for hours on end due to a delay like I was you're pretty much trapped in one concourse as there's no way to get from one concourse to another with out leaving security. The bathrooms (the men's at least) is a whole other story. I'm not sure that they even have anyone around to clean their restrooms. Dirty, disgusting, and outdated.
- Jeremy Reinhart

★★☆☆☆
Rental Car facility is a long walk from Southwest. No shuttle service. Plus have to walk outside for a bit of it. Can get wet and cold when weather is bad. Food is not the best. With all the good food down in NOLA, it would be nice to have some of it at the airport. there are a couple places to eat in Southwest, but food is not that great.
- Ed McGuirk

★★★☆☆
I must admit I was pretty disappointed with parts of MSY. Getting to the airport and check in aren't bad. The security check is rather hectic going into Terminal C, and it is very narrow. The terminal facilities feel older than most airports. The wifi barely worked, and the food options in terminal C were extremely disappointing.
