Lambert's C Concourse will welcome US Airways on Thursday October 18. The airline will move its gate operations from the A Concourse to Gates C16, 18, C24 effective with the first flights out on Thursday.
There will be no disruption of flights with the move. The US Airways check-in process in Terminal 1 will remain the same but passengers will begin to use the C Concourse checkpoint.
“We think the US Airways move will have a significant positive impact to balance the passenger load between concourses to help reduce security checkpoint wait times on the A Concourse,” said Lambert Director Rhonda Hamm-Niebruegge. “Furthermore, the recently expanded C Checkpoint will easily accommodate the increased passenger demand with this change.”
US Airways is Lambert’s 4th largest airlines (6.5% market share) operating 17 flights a day to Charlotte, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh and Phoenix. More than 1,100 passengers fly on US Airways daily.
Stop by the new St. Louis Brewmasters Tap Room just to count bottles.
Here’s a new hot photo spot to capture a bit of St. Louis culture. This is the feature wall at the new St. Louis Brewmasters Tap Room in Terminal 2 across from Gate E24. It’s all about the beer and the bottles. Brown, green and clear bottles are spread across a field of yellow highlighted by our city name in script. How many bottles? You’ll have to stop by and count yourself. While you’re at it, have a brew and some eats and relax at Lambert’s new Tap Room before your next flight on Southwest Airlines.
Iron workers set beams in place for expanded baggage operations at Terminal 2.
Iron workers were on their game this week as steel was flying in the mix of aircraft coming and going at Terminal 2. Lambert is building a new automated Checked Baggage Inline Screening System (CBIS) that will greatly improve the security and delivery of bags from ticket counters to aircraft. To do this, Lambert is redesigning and expanding its baggage operation footprint at Terminal 2. This steel structure will house a new area for airline workers to unload bags from arriving flights.

There’s a major campaign underway at Lambert-St. Louis International Airport. It’s a column campaign. The Airport is in the final year of its $70 million Airport Experience Program. The program’s renovations are producing a major interior transformation of Terminal 1 and its connected concourses. The clean and modern feel of the Airport’s renovated spaces include higher ceilings and brighter lights. To finish off the look, all structural columns are getting a makeover, too. More than 115 column covers, made of a plastic and metal composite material, are being installed as the renovation progresses through Terminal 1.
A flight takes off from Lambert as crews hoist a new flag pole into place in front of Terminal 1.
All flags on duty. That was the call this week after crews finished the installation of two new 72-ft flag poles in front of Terminal 1 at Lambert-St. Louis International Airport. The original poles were damaged during the 2011 spring tornado. Crews connected the sections of the poles and installed the hoisting gear on site before a crane did the heavy lifting. Since that tornado, the American flag has been flying solo. Now the Airport is once again flying four flags with return of the Missouri state flag, City of St. Louis flag and the Airport flag.
Crews are starting to install the next generation of display screens on the west flight display tower in Lambert’s Terminal 1 Ticketing Lobby.
Do the math: 7x4x4. Those are the numbers behind the major monitor upgrade for Lambert’s two flight display towers in the Terminal 1 Ticketing Lobby. The break down: Seven monitors across, four monitors high, and two sides per tower. It all adds up to 112 new 46" LCD monitors, which will create four seamless video walls for flight and airport information. The upgrade means swapping out projector screens with bulbs for more energy efficient flat screens with LED imaging technology. The video walls will be brighter and easier to read. The project will be completed within the next several weeks.
