New Orleans is not only one of the largest cities in Louisiana, but is also the Gulf of Mexico’s busiest northern port since the early 1700s. The city was founded by the French and was bought by the United States in the 1803 Louisiana Purchase. With its roots in the French culture, New Orleans has a distinct Creole history and culture, and its mixed French, Haitian, Spanish, African American and Native American influences can be found on every street.  Even the devastating floods of Hurricane Katrina in 2005 couldn’t keep this unique and historic city down.

This means airlines can decide to offer PayPal to travelers through their websites across global markets with transaction references, helping to ease reconciliation. Thanks to Amadeus’ Agent Pay innovation travelers can also choose to pay with PayPal at the call center or even in face-to-face environments, with a secure link to make payment provided by the agent.
