ST. LOUIS (KMOX) – A majority of flights in and out of Lambert-St. Louis International Airport have been cancelled for Tuesday due to winter storm conditions. However, Lambert remains open.
In a press release Tuesday, Lambert says the airport’s winter storm response team has successfully pre-treated the runways and other surfaces on the airfield and some airline and cargo operations continued as scheduled through Tuesday morning.
As of 10 a.m., nearly 420 out of a total of 500 arriving and departing flights are cancelled for Tuesday. Airlines have yet to make any determination of the status of flights for Wednesday. Passengers are urged to stay in contact with their airlines for the latest flight information. The storm, which has produced freezing rain, sleet and snow is expected to impact many airports across the country, so airlines will be modifying flight schedules for the next several days.
Lambert is expecting to begin snow removal operations around noon on Tuesday. Those operations consist of nearly 220 personnel with snow plows, material spreaders, snow blowers, runway brooms, deicer trucks, road graders, plows and dump trucks.
