How to spot a Louisiana travel warning
The Louisiana Travel Advisory is in place for all Louisiana residents.
Louisiana has had travel advisories since 2003, when the state’s tourism department launched its new “travel warning” for the state.
Now, the department has extended the advisory by two years.
Louisiana travel advisaries have been in place since 2003.
They are based on a national survey of tourists, which found that almost three quarters of Louisians have heard of the travel warning.
But it is not the same as a national travel warning, which is issued by the Federal Aviation Administration.
It is a state-specific advisory, and not a federal advisory.
Louisians can report suspected terrorism, dangerous weather conditions, or other safety threats to the Travel Advisory Center, located at the airport or in the state Capitol.
Louisias National Transportation Safety Board can also report suspected fraud, misuse, or abuse of travel advisors, and the state will hold a teleconference on Feb. 1 at 10 a.m. to answer questions about the advisories.
