Air

Four airports with cargo capacity within 20 miles.

Lambert St. Louis International Airport

Lambert accommodates six cargo airlines and offers extensive freight handling services. In April 2006, Lambert completed a $1.2 billion expansion that featured a new 9,000-foot runway, two 9,000-foot taxiways, and road improvements. 

MidAmerica St. Louis Airport

A short drive from downtown St. Louis and adjacent to Scott Air Force Base, MidAmerica is a joint, civilian-military facility that focuses on international air cargo. In the fall of 2003, about 3,800 acres at MidAmerica and 2,700 acres of surrounding undeveloped land were designated part of FTZ No. 31. With a 10,000-foot runway and a new 50,000-square-foot cargo facility, featuring 10 air access doors and 37 truck docks, MidAmerica is poised to become a significant player in international air cargo.

St. Louis Regional Airport

Closest to Gateway, this airport has an 8,100-foot-long runway and can handle freight movement. UPS operates a facility there.  The 255 expansion, completed in 2006, is expected to increase traffic to this airport. 

The St. Louis Downtown Airport

This facility is operated by Metro, a public agency that owns and operates the region's public transportation system.  It is constructing a new $7 million air traffic control tower, scheduled for completion in 2007.
