Kenner is an eclectic blend of residential neighborhoods, a variety of businesses and space dedicated to the celebration of Kenner’s natural resources. Those looking for homes for sale in Kenner can select an area that focuses on what matters most to them without sacrificing a great location close to the city.
Louis Armstrong International Airport
Louis Armstrong International Airport, formerly known as Moisant Field, began commercial service in the mid-20th century and as a result, Kenner’s population quickly doubled. The population’s steady increase continued into the early 50s when Kenner achieved “city” status. There have been rumblings from time to time of moving the airport out of Kenner to less dense areas like New Orleans East or Montz; but New Orleanians have held strong that improvements were all that were needed and Kenner continues to be the first slice of New Orleans visitors see when touching down for a holiday. Many young professionals that frequently travel have requested showings of homes for sale in Kenner to ensure smoother travel to and from the airport.
