ST. LOUIS -- St. Louis Lambert International Airport (STL) wants visitors to get a taste of St. Louis as part of a new dining concept in Terminal 2. Local restaurateurs are invited to submit a bid for this exciting opportunity to design, construct, manage, and operate in STL’s busiest Terminal, which saw more than 7 million passengers last year. This is the first time in four years the airport has reached out for a new restaurant opportunity.

STL is currently expanding gate capacity in Terminal 2 because of growth in passengers and air traffic activity. This bid allows local restaurateurs to participate and meet the anticipated demand by constructing a first-class restaurant in a newly available space. STL is seeking a concept that is indigenous to the St. Louis area, known for excellent food and exceptional service.

“We are actively seeking ways to bring the St. Louis experience into our Airport,” said Rhonda Hamm-Niebruegge. “This is a really great opportunity for a local business to connect with our millions of travelers, and gives visitors a unique way to connect with our city.”

The deadline for bids is June 30, 2017. A pre-bid meeting and tour will be heldApril 21. Bidders may access the qualifications and learn more about this opportunity at  

Southwest Airlines exclusively operates out of Terminal 2 and serves 54 percent of the STL’s overall passenger traffic, which reached nearly 14 million in 2016.
