Lambert passengers make their way past Delta gate A2 on the Friday before Memorial Day.
The Memorial Day holiday weekend and a heat wave are sure signs that summer has arrived in St. Louis. The kickoff to the summer travel season has been very evident throughout Lambert this week. Airline gate areas, concourses, bag claims--all seem to be bustling with a boost of passengers. If the spring is any indication, the Airport will be showing strong activity through the summer. Lambert’s first quarter passenger traffic was up 3.4 percent.
A carpenter with Bam Contracting measures up the framing for a new wall for Lambert’s ticket counter renovations in Terminal 1.
Behind walls, more walls are going up on the ticketing level of Terminal 1. Lambert is now in phase two of ticket counter and airline office renovations. The work is across from the recently renovated American Airlines ticket counters. Workers are currently framing and installing new heating and ventilation systems. Renovations will also include new baggage delivery systems, ticket counters, kiosks and new terrazzo flooring.
Katie Schmitz of Boston gives her pet Pomeranian, Cricket, a bottle break during a layover at the Pet Relief area outside Terminal 2.
There are times when a layover is greatly appreciated by our travelers, especially when flying with a four-legged companion. For Cricket, a 3-year old Pomeranian, the break brought much needed relief after a long flight from Boston in a carry-on pet carrier. Her owner, Katie Schmitz, found the Lambert’s pet relief area outside Terminal 2 Bag Claim so she could rest and her dog could work off a little built-up energy. Cricket got a well deserved bottle break, as well, to quench her thirst for the next leg of their journey.
Lambert has one more surprise in the wait for the newly renovated and restored C Concourse. InMotion Entertainment missed out on all the reopening festivities one month ago. Employees were busy Friday stocking the shelves to open by this weekend. The electronics and entertainment retail store has moved next to Gate C7 and features a new store design dressed in red and black. InMotion offers DVD’s, cameras, games, headphones and a full assortment of electronic accessories that are in high demand by travelers. InMotion also has stores in the A and E Concourses at Lambert.
