St. Louis Airport to Build First "Common Use Club"
ST. LOUIS, MO, (SLFP.com), May 5, 2017 - The St. Louis Airport Commission has gave preliminary approval to major debt refunding deal that could yield millions in savings for St. Louis Lambert International Airport (STL). Commissioners also approved a plan for the build-out of the Airport's first common-use passenger club set for Terminal 2.

The Airport Commission also voted to approve a contract for the Airport's first "Common Use" club, slated to be built in the newly re-opened area in the west end of Terminal 2. The 10-year agreement is with St. Louis-based Airport Terminal Services, dba Wingtips, which currently operates Wingtips in New York's JFK T4 and manages Lufthansa's Senator Club at Detroit Metropolitan airports.

Pending final approval of the agreement, the Wingtips club will be constructed near gate E-31 and will have many of the same amenities as airline clubs (food, beverages, and private work stations). It would be open to all passengers for a daily use fee. The 10-year contract sets a minimal annual revenue guarantee to the Airport of $3,454,465. Board of Aldermen approval is still required.

The Airport Commission also gave the first approval to a revenue agreement with Enterprise Leasing Company of STL, LLC for the use of a 17.8 acre paved parking lot at 4401 Springdale Ave. The five-year agreement (plus a five-year option) amounts to $120,000 per year in new revenues. The agreement must also be finalized and approved by the City Board of Aldermen.

Airport Mural Showcases History of Tuskegee Airmen
ST. LOUIS, MO, (SLFP.com) - The history of the Tuskegee Airmen, who soared soared into combat to help the U.S. win air battles during World War II, is showcased in a mural, "Black Americans in Flight", that has been on display at Lambert International Airport since 1990.

"Black Americans in Flight" was painted by St. Louis artists Spencer Taylor and Solomon Thurman to highlight the contributions of African American achievements in aviation from 1917 to the space age.

The Tuskegee Airmen prominently featured in the mural, which features 75 portraits, include Eugene Jacque Bullard, Benjamin O. Davis, Jr, Clarence "Lucky" Lester and Wendell Pruitt, a St. Louis pilot who received a Distinguished Flying Cross after downing three planes and sinking a destroyer. Those who supported black aviators are also featured, including Eleanor Roosevelt and President Harry S. Truman. Some of those same Tuskegee Airmen are also featured in the film "Red Tails".

"Black Americans in Flight" has been recently cleaned and restored in its original location in the Terminal 1 Bag Claim. Lambert has also unveiled extensive renovations around the 51-ft mural that enhances its visibility with a new waiting area that is located directly across from a major concourse exit for arriving passengers.


Lambert-St. Louis International Airport
ST. LOUIS, MO, (SLFP.com) - Lambert has grown from a balloon launch location called Kinloch Field to a major transportation center. The originally hayfields were purchased by Major Albert Lambert and renamed it Lambert Field in 1920. The airport has played an important role in air transportation. Col. Charles Lindbergh departed from Lambert Flying Field in 1927 St. Louis for New York to begin his historic non-stop solo flight to Paris, France.

Lambert kicked off 2010 with a campaign to overhaul its main roadway with all new signs and other infrastructure enhancements. The $1.2 million Wayfinding Signage Project will greatly improve visitor experiences by simplifying and improving airport messaging which will include renaming Lambert's terminals.

The addition of all new signs now makes it possible for Lambert to adopt numerical terminal designations which are commonly used because they are sign friendly, easier to understand and easier to remember.

The "Main Terminal" will become Terminal 1. The "East Terminal" will become Terminal 2. Other features of the new signage program includes simple consistent messaging, color-coded symbols, distinct interstate signage, airline terminal locations, improved car rental signage and improved parking lot information.
