St. Louis Airport Opens First "Common Use Club"
ST. LOUIS, MO, (SLFP.com), January 7, 2018 - Passengers at the busiest terminal at St. Louis Lambert International Airport (STL) have a major new amenity to make their trip more comfortable and relaxing.

Wingtips St. Louis, the first and only common-use lounge at STL opened Friday, January 5 in Terminal 2 across from Gate E31. Terminal 2 serves Southwest Airlines and will soon welcome WOW Air with its new Trans-Atlantic international service to Iceland, beginning in May.

The term "Common Use" means that members and their guests do not need to be a frequent flyer, a premium member or ticketed on any particular airline. The lounge provides guests with an upscale environment to relax, refresh and recharge while they wait for their flights. Complimentary high-speed Wi-Fi is also available to all guests.

At Wingtips, guests can recharge themselves and their devices with power outlets available throughout the lounge and portable power banks available by request. Every traveler will have access to complimentary in-lounge amenities including restrooms and a food buffet with snacks throughout the day and hot options available for breakfast and dinner. Complimentary non-alcoholic beverages and selection of spirits, wines and beers are available for guests 21 and older.

"We are excited to expand Wingtips to St. Louis. Airport lounges are changing, and we know that travelers want an upscale airport lounge experience regardless of the airline they are flying," said Sally Leible, president of St. Louis-based Airport Terminal Services (ATS) which owns and operates Wingtips. "People expect greater flexibility and the amenities to make their air travel experience more pleasant. Our members and guests now have a place in Terminal 2 where they can escape the bustle of the airport and unwind prior to their flight."

"We are excited for the opening of STL's first common-use club because it has been one of the amenities most requested by our passengers," said Airport Director Rhonda Hamm-Niebruegge. "With demand and growth at Terminal 2 because of new non-stop routes on Southwest Airlines and a new international carrier this spring, Wingtips St. Louis offers travelers great options for rest and relaxation, refreshments or a more private place to do business at the airport."

Airport Mural Showcases History of Tuskegee Airmen
ST. LOUIS, MO, (SLFP.com) - The history of the Tuskegee Airmen, who soared soared into combat to help the U.S. win air battles during World War II, is showcased in a mural, "Black Americans in Flight", that has been on display at Lambert International Airport since 1990.

"Black Americans in Flight" was painted by St. Louis artists Spencer Taylor and Solomon Thurman to highlight the contributions of African American achievements in aviation from 1917 to the space age.

The Tuskegee Airmen prominently featured in the mural, which features 75 portraits, include Eugene Jacque Bullard, Benjamin O. Davis, Jr, Clarence "Lucky" Lester and Wendell Pruitt, a St. Louis pilot who received a Distinguished Flying Cross after downing three planes and sinking a destroyer. Those who supported black aviators are also featured, including Eleanor Roosevelt and President Harry S. Truman. Some of those same Tuskegee Airmen are also featured in the film "Red Tails".

"Black Americans in Flight" has been recently cleaned and restored in its original location in the Terminal 1 Bag Claim. Lambert has also unveiled extensive renovations around the 51-ft mural that enhances its visibility with a new waiting area that is located directly across from a major concourse exit for arriving passengers.


Lambert-St. Louis International Airport
ST. LOUIS, MO, (SLFP.com) - Lambert has grown from a balloon launch location called Kinloch Field to a major transportation center. The originally hayfields were purchased by Major Albert Lambert and renamed it Lambert Field in 1920. The airport has played an important role in air transportation. Col. Charles Lindbergh departed from Lambert Flying Field in 1927 St. Louis for New York to begin his historic non-stop solo flight to Paris, France.

Lambert kicked off 2010 with a campaign to overhaul its main roadway with all new signs and other infrastructure enhancements. The $1.2 million Wayfinding Signage Project will greatly improve visitor experiences by simplifying and improving airport messaging which will include renaming Lambert's terminals.

The addition of all new signs now makes it possible for Lambert to adopt numerical terminal designations which are commonly used because they are sign friendly, easier to understand and easier to remember.

The "Main Terminal" will become Terminal 1. The "East Terminal" will become Terminal 2. Other features of the new signage program includes simple consistent messaging, color-coded symbols, distinct interstate signage, airline terminal locations, improved car rental signage and improved parking lot information.
