Important Note: All of the information set forth below is historical and subject to change.

Project Description:
St. Louis-Lambert International Airport is located in St. Louis County, which is adjacent to the City, approximately 15 miles northwest of the City's central business district, and approximately 10 miles from the population center of the St. Louis metropolitan area. The Airport was originally established by Major Albert Bond Lambert and other aviation pioneers on a 160-acre site. The Airport was acquired by the City in 1929 and subsequently expanded to slightly more than 3,600 acres.

The Airport has 4 all-weather runways, 2 terminals, and is configured for up to 86 gates. Three primary runways may be used without restrictions by the largest types of commercial aircraft currently in use. The remaining runway is sufficient in length to safely handle most types of aircraft currently serving the Airport. In addition to the runways, there are more than 15 miles of 75-foot-wide concrete taxiways and four concrete holding pads.

Terminal facilities include Terminal 1 and Terminal 2. Terminal 1 contains 1,094,245 usable square feet of building space and is comprised of the Main Terminal and four concourses (Concourses A, B, C, and all but 3 easternmost gates in Concourse D) with 67 aircraft gates in a mixed configuration. Terminal 2 has 331,329 usable square feet of building space with 19 aircraft gates.

The Airport is a "Medium Hub" by Federal Aviation Administration classification, as it enplaned less than 1 percent of the total passengers in the United States in 2017. 

Bondholder Security:
The Airport Revenue Bonds are limited obligations of the City payable solely from the revenues derived from the operation of the Airport and certain other funds pledged under the Indenture, including the Debt Service Stabilization Fund and the Debt Service Reserve Fund. The principal sources of revenues are the rates and charges generated under agreements between the City and the airlines serving the Airport and payments under concession contracts at the Airport.
