How do I get to NAS JRB New Orleans?
NAS JRB New Orleans is located on Hwy. 23 in Belle Chasse, La. Please visit the "Parking and Directional" tab for more information on directions.
Where do I park?
There are two primary parking areas, accessible through the NAS JRB gate off of Barriere Road and through the Blue Gate entrance to the base, which is just south of the main gate on Hwy. 23. Guests will board shuttles at the parking areas to be taken to the flight line entry control points for the air show. (Shuttle space is limited so large strollers may not fit and will need to be left in your vehicle). Entrance through the main gate is available ONLY to military members, base residents and base employees with proper identification.
Is there handicapped parking available?
Handicapped guests should enter the base via the main gate at the base on Hwy 23 or the "Blue Gate" which is approximately a half mile south of the main gate. Security personnel will issue handicapped parking passes once the guest has provided proof either by license plate, state issued placard or I.D. Please note that handicapped parking is limited and will be available on first-come, first-serve basis.
Is it possible to drop people off at the flight line entrance gates and then go park?
Unfortunately this is not allowed.
Can I ride a bike or motorcycle?
