Photo of the Week: Art of Fashion

Polyester, bell bottoms and wild colors made a comeback at Lambert Thursday night, all in the name of art.

The 2nd Annual Art of Travel event at Lambert turned into a hilarious clash of neon, polyester, big shades and big hair. And we wouldn’t have wanted it any other way. The event for the Airport’s Art & Culture Program set out to embrace everything ‘70s. More than 250 of some of Lambert’s biggest supporters adopted the challenge to "Get Groovy" for the night that featured hints of disco and the "peace era." The event honored Lambert’s newest artists whose works are now throughout the Airport while raising money to build up the program with new works in the near future.

US Airways Makes Move to C Concourse on October 18

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.

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.
