Airport Experience Program

Terminal 1

Terminal 1 renovations began in early 2011. The interior makeover in the terminal includes the relocation of the C Concourse checkpoint, new meet/greet areas, updated restrooms, new ticket counters, new Ticket Lobby flooring and higher and brighter ceilings in the lower level and baggage claim. New signage and the introduction of art are also part of the Airport Experience.

The Airport Experience Campaign is scheduled to be completed in early 2013.


Dome Restoration

Developed in 1956 by visionary Architect Minoru Yamasaki, the architectural design of Terminal 1 (Lambert’s original terminal) was dedicated as a “Grand Central Station of Air” with its arching floor to ceiling windows and 36-ft. dome ceilings.

Those dome ceilings are now restored with a new “Arctic White” acoustical coating to improve sound absorption.  The new ceiling treatment has brightened the Ticketing Hall much like it was when it was first built.  The project also included new improved skylights with LED lighting that can produce a number of colors that can be seen inside and outside the terminal. 

In-Bound Baggage Claim

Lambert completed the installation of a new baggage system (arrivals) in Terminal 1 in 2009. All six carousels and two large claim systems were replaced along with the luggage conveyer system in Terminal 1. These carousels will run faster, smoother, and quieter, resulting in less jams and luggage hang-ups than the previous baggage system.  Besides being more reliable and efficient, the new low-profile carousels have opened the views for arriving passengers and visitors in the baggage claim area.

Wayfinding and Signage

Lambert-St. Louis International Airport invested $1.2 million on a new wayfinding master plan to make it easier for the traveling public to find their way to and from the airport. 

The Wayfinding Project involved installing all new roadway signs for airport traffic from Interstate 70 and other entry points to Lambert’s terminals, parking lots, and other airport-related facilities. The new signs are more consistent in messaging, look and color. The project was completed in 2010.
