New Orleans' Louis Armstrong Airport will reopen to commercial traffic on September 13, nearly two weeks after Hurricane Katrina shut down the city, an airport official said on Saturday.

The airport authority said cargo flights would resume immediately.

"We are extremely pleased to reopen Armstrong International to commercial air service," said Roy Williams, director of aviation. "Scheduled passenger and cargo service enhances the airport's ability to support the city and region in its recovery."
