I had the opportunity to return back to the Flight hub of St. Louis’ transportation district, St. Louis Lambert International Airport. Because the last time I was at the airport, I was a passenger, heading west to Idaho, to see a friend about a mountain.
This time I was there to find out what was going on with Missouri’s most busiest airport. Meanwhile, on the opposite side of I-70, our neighbor Kansas City is now experiencing wavering buzz with their all-new state of the world airport.
However, the STL is still seeing its share of increases in passenger traffic. In addition, at this very moment, people were all over Terminal 1, eating, laughing, being checked at TSA checkpoints, and moving to gates.
Moreover, I was so happy to see the hustle and bustle of the STL, as we made our way through the throng. I also saw several art exhibits and interesting murals, that most definitely told some stories.
Momentarily, there was the opportunity to chat with Roger Lotz with the PR department, and he showed us around the terminal, pointing out what was new and what had changed. He even showed me the location of Terminal 2, an area we didn’t get to travel to.
Accompanied by, my production assistant Jeffrey of Golden Brick Publishing, we’d finally sat down to enjoy a delicious brunch, at the all-new Kingside Diner airport location. In which, you can also find them at the Delmar Loop-east store.
Wikipedia: St. Louis Lambert International Airport (IATA: STL, ICAO: KSTL, FAA LID: STL) is the primary commercial airport serving metropolitan St. Louis, Missouri, United States. The airport covers 3,793 acres (1,535 ha) of land.
St. Louis Lambert International Airport is the largest and busiest airport in the state of Missouri. It is located 14 miles northwest of downtown St. Louis and provides nonstop flights to domestic and international locations.
Besides air transportation, metro, rental car companies, taxi services, and shuttle services are also available. It was named after Albert Bond Lambert, a St. Louis aviator, and has been associated with Charles Lindbergh, Trans World Airlines, and its iconic terminal.
Boeing’s $1.8B pitch to expand operations onto St. Louis Lambert International Airport approved. Boeing hoped to get approval from the airport to make its $2 billion investment a reality. As of last month, their hope materialized into a decades-long deal.
With fine exhibits though out Terminal 1, some African-Americans should be proud to walk through the corridors. One of my personal favorite is shown below, and you can see some in the video recap as well.
