New Orleans has put its airport PR business out for review through October, calling for proposals to guide communications for Louis Armstrong International Airport.
Previous budgets have been in the $250K-a-year range as firms like Deveney Communications and Sardie & Associates worked with the New Orleans Aviation Board, which oversees the airport owned by the city, on an as-needed basis.
An RFP was issued Sept. 8 with an Oct. 6 deadline.
PR efforts include informing the public of the airport’s benefit to the regional economy and positioning it as a “community asset.”
The last review was in 2008.
Details are on the board's website.
