St. Louis airport traffic increases from pandemic low, still lags normal summer

The number of passengers traveling is rising at St. Louis-Lambert International Airport, KTVI reports.

There’s been a 25% increase in flyers since the highest impact from COVID-19. However, flyers are still down 75% compared to this time last year.

Flight bookings are up, and airlines are starting to schedule more flights and increase flight traffic.

The airport received about $60 million in federal funding.

Lambert is continuing to take action, such as ensuring enhanced cleaning procedures, though masks are not required. Restaurants inside the airport closed due to fewer flyers and are expected to reopen as more people fly.
