Lambert-St. Louis International Airport will gain two flights this spring, to Washington, D.C.’s Reagan National and New York’s LaGuardia airports, due to changes required by last year’s merger of American Airlines and US Airways, according to an airport spokesman and St. Louis Mayor Francis Slay.
A spokesman for the combined Fort Worth, Texas-based American Airlines Group Inc. confirmed the airline will add flights from Lambert to Reagan National and LaGuardia, but would not specify the number of flights. American officials said effective dates for the changes will be announced in the coming weeks after the slot divestitures are completed.
American currently operates 29 daily flights from Lambert, and US Airways operates 16 daily flights. American Airlines is the second-largest carrier out of Lambert, behind Southwest Airlines.
