Concourse C tornado damage at Lambert Airport
St. Louis, MO (KSDK) - Nearly a year after a tornado caused tens of millions of dollars in damage to Lambert Airport, Concourse C will reopen for the first slate of flights on Monday, April 2.
Concourse C sustained heavy roof, window and interior damage after a tornado and other storms struck the airport and surrounding areas on the night of April 22, 2012, also known as the Good Friday Tornado.
Airlines operating out of Concourse C shifted their services to the B and D Concourses. Those concourses will close after the final flight on Sunday, April 1. American Airlines, Frontier Airlines and Cape Air will move their operations overnight to accommodate guests at the newly renovated C Concourse.
Among the renovation projects associated with the Concourse C restoration are an all-new tiled corridor, brighter ceilings, oval "cloud" lighting, fully renovated restrooms, new signage, digital directory maps and five sets of art glass screens created by local artists.
Lambert-St. Louis International Airport is the 30th busiest airport in the United States, ranked by Airports Council International-North America.
