Louisiana Area Codes Pieces Of Information

Area codes in Louisiana are two, three, or four digits long. In general, area codes in Louisiana are lengthier than those in other parts of the country. The most common lengths are three and four digits. Area codes in Louisiana are often prefixed with a 1, which is not always necessary when dialing within the state. The area code system was developed to meet the increasing demand for new telephone numbers. Area codes are assigned on a geographical basis, with each state having multiple codes.

When writing phone numbers from Area Codes in Louisiana, it is standard to use parentheses around the area code, as well as a dash between the exchange code and subscriber number: (XXX) XXX-XXXX. Some areas may use a different format, such as XXX-XXX-XXXX or XXXXXXXXXX. It is important to check with your local telephone service provider to determine the proper phone number format for your specific Area Code.

Louisiana Area Codes by Number:

  • Area Code 337: Covers most of southwestern Louisiana, from Lafayette to Lake Charles. Area code 337 was created in 1999 as a split from area code 504.
  • Area Code 318: Covers northwestern Louisiana, from Shreveport to Minden. Area code 318 was Louisiana’s first area code, established in 1947.
  • Area Code 225: Covers southeastern Louisiana, including Baton Rouge and the Greater New Orleans area. Area code 225 was created in 1998 as a split from area code 504.
  • Area Code 985: Covers southeastern Louisiana outside of the Greater New Orleans area, from Houma to Hammond. Area code 985 was created in 2001 as a split from area code 504.

To call a phone number with an Area Code from outside of Louisiana, dial 1 + Area Code + 7-digit local number. For example, to call a Baton Rouge number from outside of Louisiana, you would dial 1 + 225 + XXX-XXXX. When calling within Louisiana, but outside of the Area Code’s coverage area, dial 1 + Area Code + 7-digit local number. For example, to call a Lake Charles number from Baton Rouge, you would dial 1 + 337 + XXX-XXXX. If you are unsure which Area Code covers the city or town you are trying to reach, you can use the Area Code Lookup tool on the Louisiana Public Service Commission’s website.

When calling from outside of the United States, dial 011 + Country Code + Area Code + 7-digit local number. For example, to call a Baton Rouge number from Canada, you would dial 011 + 1 + 225 + XXX-XXXX. To call a Lake Charles number from Mexico, you would dial 011 + 52 + 337 + XXX-XXXX.

If you need to call someone in Louisiana, be sure to use the correct area codes for the city you are trying to reach. With ten different codes in use, it is important to know which one to use. Failure to do so can result in a high-cost long-distance call.
