  • Oct 2023 - Lambert's airlines have agreed to help fund airport projects totaling an estimated $331.6 million. The agreed-upon projects are the result of Lambert's master plan, an updated version of which the FAA approved In May. The plan, which runs through 2040, includes a reported $3 billion project to reconfigure the facility with a new, single terminal. Lambert officials said in May that they had begun negotiating with the airlines, which would figure prominently in financing the single-terminal project through landing and rental fees.
  • The $331 million in projects approved by the airlines, and their timelines if provided, include:
    • Design and construction of a new central utility plant, with design slated to start in mid-2024. The new plant will give Lambert updated mechanical and electrical systems, as much of the airport's existing utility plant dates to the original construction of Terminal 1, which opened in 1956, officials said. A central utility plant houses systems include power distribution, water, air conditioning, chillers, boilers, main pumps, air compressors and other systems.
    • Relocation of airfield maintenance campus, for which design has begun. The current airfield maintenance campus, which dates to construction that began in the 1960s, is located in a flood-prone area and can't accommodate maintenance or storage of modern airfield maintenance equipment, officials said.
    • Design and construction of a new west deicing pad, with design to start in mid-2024. Moving the airfield maintenance campus will allow Lambert to develop a west deicing pad that officials said is essential to meeting the need to more safely and efficiently deice aircraft in the winter.
    • Demolition of the vacant Missouri Air National Guard complex, with planning for the project to begin in mid-2024. Removing the abandoned complex, located on Lambert's airfield side, will allow the airport to cut the costs needed to maintain "an unoccupied and aging facility," officials said.
    • Acquiring executive program management services and program management services that will enhance staff for the agreed-upon projects. The "augmented" employees will be located in Lambert's Planning and Development Department to support the airport’s team in organizing and implementing the projects over the next several years, officials said.
