Chinese hub proposal at Lambert still in the works?

ST. LOUIS, Mo (KMOX) — St. Louis Lambert Airport is still waiting to hear from Chinese Officials about adding a Chinese Air cargo hub to its campus.

Almost a month after Chinese officials came to St. Louis to discuss the hub’s proposal, Lambert Airport Director Rhonda Hamm-Niebruegge said that a deal has not been made yet.

“We don’t have a deal, but it hasn’t fallen through either,” Hamm-Niebruegge said. “There are no major obstacles on the table.”

Hamm-Niebruegge said Lambert Officials are expected to hear something by next week about the proposal, but if there’s no word from the Chinese by the end of this year,  there will be cause for concern.
