Lambert-Saint Louis International Airport

Lambert-Saint Louis International Airport (IATA Airport Code STL) is the primary airport for Saint Louis, Missouri and the surrounding area. In 2002, over 25 million passengers traveled through the airport.

It is named after Major Albert Bond Lambert, an aviation pioneer who bought a plane from the Wright brothers and later purchased the airfield which over the years grew into the airport as it is today.

The airport is the starting point for the famous flight that Charles Lindbergh made to Paris in 1927.

Lambert-Saint Louis International Airport was once the hub of Trans World Airlines. That airline was acquired by American Airlines in 2000, and for a while, Lambert became a reliever hub for American's O' Hare International Airport hub. Capacity cutbacks, the latest in effect as of November 2003, have reduced the number of nonstop flights out of St. Louis down to less than 70, resulting in the closure of two concourses in Terminal 1.

Lambert-Saint Louis International Airport has two terminals.
