Re: We need a new airport!!!

I, too, prefer the H shape honestly. I think there is more potential for growth. Just read this article in the biz journal - top places KC flies too, duh - all the hub airports. I am sure that we don't "choose" to vacation to ATL, DTW, MSP and others LOL But, I get it, it is the top "...

Re: We need a new airport!!!

I'm at Lambert right now, terminal A, and I don't know what your smoking STLguy1, but this place is only marginally better than MCI. Would not want to layover here. You are in A Concourse - the oldest concourse and the smallest. Home to all the "other airlines" that are the smallest O&...

Re: We need a new airport!!!

Late Summer is the current goal to start demo. and is likely do able. I heard that there was some sort of renovation a while back that removed/addressed a lot of potential environmental issues. I don’t think the city fiasco really delayed this process much. If actual building up starts late this ye...

Re: We need a new airport!!!

I just really think that we won't get this off the ground (a hole in the ground) until late this year or early next. It is March now. In addition, they will also need to demolish some areas to begin building first. I see us opening the new terminal in 2022 or 2023. But I hope I am wrong.

Re: STL International Airport

I agree the new 2 highrises in downtown STL and Central West End's modern One Hundred Tower are amazing and I have height envy/modern right now.

Re: STL International Airport

I guess I am saying impressive in that it is busy... not aesthetics. That being said, I fly every week - back and forth to KC. Sometimes I wish I didn't but I work in immigration and it is what it is. Sky Harbor (PHX) is not impressive to me at all. It is just like STL if you ask me. Portland (PDX) ...

Re: We need a new airport!!!

2021 is absolutely doable. September 2021 is 3.5 years away. The convention hotel is going to go up in two years and it's a much more substantial building. I hope so. Sooner can't come faster. I am worried though, things like this tied to government and monies, usually have terrible delays. Indy's ...

STL International Airport

Found this on UrbanSTL site. Posted there and thought it was pretty impressive. I fly back and forth from STL on Southwest and find the airport in STL very nice. It just feels like a big airport to me, especially flying out of KCI. Our new airport will help, but not sure if it will have that "w...

Kcpowercat... I'm not sure why you posted. There was 4 posts above... no bashing STL it KC going on. 2 of those posts were about the construction timeline for the new KCI. in addition the other was a video I reposted on YouTube showing STLs terminal 2 that was discussed about 20 pages ago.

Re: We need a new airport!!!

STL Disadvatages: Terminal is old. The terminal needs significant upgrades(like baggage) I don't think you have been to STL lately. Their entire airport, both terminal 1 and 2 and all concourses have been completely redone in the past 3 to 5 years. It's a whole new airport really. Looks completely ...

I like it too. Super sleek and modern. Looks like something that would be in Chicago, NYC or Toronto.

It has been passed and should be under construction by this summer according to the St. Louis Post Dispatch.

Re: We need a new airport!!!

STL Metro did not lose population. You are misinformed. The growth was slower but not negative. Back to KC Airport. The 2017 statistics are out. Here they are: [it should be noted that in 2017 New Orleans and Raleigh have passed Kansas City in passengers and growth and we had the lowest percentage g...

Re: We need a new airport!!!

I wouldn't call STL a "struggling sister" unless you really feel that KC is better off - there's a lot of big projects in STL's central cooridor that I wish we had going on in KC. There seems to be way more activity there.

As for Kansas City Airport...

According to Shake Shack corporate offices, they have no current plans for our area. However, their email said to enjoy Shake Shack in St. Louis, Chicago or soon to open - Nashville.
