American Airlines Features Louisiana On September Flights
News from Louisiana Economic Development, LED
Throughout September, American Airlines is featuring Louisiana as a great place to live, work, play and invest, in American Way, the in-flight magazine published by the world’s largest airline. The magazine includes a 48-page special section – Spotlight Louisiana – that chronicles Louisiana’s past, present and future through a statewide tour, a feature about Louisiana’s global impact, a city guide, a look at how university partnerships are building the state’s workforce, and a look at how Louisiana communities are building for the future.
“We’re so excited about Louisiana,” Gov. John Bel Edwards tells American Way in the September issue. “I believe we have an era of prosperity ahead of us that we haven’t seen in a very long time. That’s not just a gut feeling, but based on all of my discussions with our economic development professionals, our congressional delegation and CEOs of companies investing in Louisiana.”
Gov. Edwards is featured in the magazine’s “My Louisiana” story while a “Trailblazers” feature highlights the leadership of LSU President F. King Alexander, CenturyLink President and CEO Jeff Storey, Entergy Chairman and CEO Leo Denault, Tulane University President Michael Fitts, Ochsner Health System President and CEO Warner Thomas and Louisiana Lt. Gov. Billy Nungesser.
