Lambert Passenger Traffic Increases Four Percent in August

The 2012 summer travel season hit its high mark for Lambert-St. Louis International Airport in August. Passenger enplanements (departing passengers) of more than 567,000 were up 4.7 percent over August of 2011. Lambert is currently showing a 2.1 percent year-to-date increase in enplanements for the first eight months of 2012 recording 4.25 million passengers versus 4.17 million in 2011.

Photo of the Week: Hoist!

A flight takes off from Lambert as crews hoist a new flag pole into place in front of Terminal 1.

All flags on duty. That was the call this week after crews finished the installation of two new 72-ft flag poles in front of Terminal 1 at Lambert-St. Louis International Airport. The original poles were damaged during the 2011 spring tornado. Crews connected the sections of the poles and installed the hoisting gear on site before a crane did the heavy lifting. Since that tornado, the American flag has been flying solo. Now the Airport is once again flying four flags with return of the Missouri state flag, City of St. Louis flag and the Airport flag.

Video Walls Install

Crews are starting to install the next generation of display screens on the west flight display tower in Lambert’s Terminal 1 Ticketing Lobby.

Do the math: 7x4x4. Those are the numbers behind the major monitor upgrade for Lambert’s two flight display towers in the Terminal 1 Ticketing Lobby. The break down: Seven monitors across, four monitors high, and two sides per tower. It all adds up to 112 new 46" LCD monitors, which will create four seamless video walls for flight and airport information. The upgrade means swapping out projector screens with bulbs for more energy efficient flat screens with LED imaging technology. The video walls will be brighter and easier to read. The project will be completed within the next several weeks.

A rooftop view gives the best perspective to a massive project underway to reconstruct a major portion of Runway 12R-30L. For weeks now, contractors have been chipping away at the decades old runway in preparation for a new concrete base that needs to handle hundreds of aircraft landings and takeoffs each day. In the forefront, is a massive hill built from the remnants of the former runway. The old concrete is crushed for reuse as a base for the new runway. The project will be completed by late fall.

Photo of the Week: Isaac Soaker

Joelyn Levy popped out the umbrella while dropping off her parents at Terminal 1 on Friday.

The brutal summer is officially coming to an end with the extended reach of Hurricane Isaac. The hurricane throttled the gulf coast this week and the super slow bands of rain have reached Missouri. At Lambert, visitors were forced to find their umbrellas, which probably haven’t seen any tours of duty for months. The St. Louis area is expected to receive up to five inches of rain through the weekend ending with a sunny Labor Day on Monday. After punishing heat and widespread drought, there will be few complaints if Isaac holds back on flooding and delivers just a well needed soaker.
