Op-Ed: Lambert Airport by the numbers - NextSTL

St. Louis Lambert International Airport, commonly known as Lambert Airport, is the largest and busiest airport in Missouri with 270 daily departures to over 80 domestic and international locations. Lambert Field became the first municipally owned airport in the United States when the City of St. Louis bought it in 1927 and shortly thereafter became the first airport with an air traffic control system.

Lambert Airport is an Enterprise Fund which means its operations are financed and operated in a manner similar to private business enterprises through user charges and fees, and do not derive funding from tax dollars. Airports can earn revenue to operate from airline fees, federal grants, passenger fees (currently $4.50/passenger), concessions such as food, parking and retail, and revenue bonds.
