ST. LOUIS (KMOX) – Lambert Airport is planning for a heavy travel day Monday. 

The recovery from Friday night’s tornado has been faster than expected. 

Airport director Rhonda Hamm-Niebruegge says Southwest Airlines, operating from Terminal Two, was back to full operation Sunday morning. 

The Main Terminal lost hundreds of windows and Concourse “C” lost its roof. 

That’s where American Airlines and Cape Air operate.  Their gates have been shifted to Concourse D and should be fully operational Monday morning. 

All of the Lambert parking areas are open again and MetroLink rail service has resumed. 

At the airport, you’ll still see boarded up windows and other signs of damage but Lambert. . .like the rest of St. Louis. . .survived nature’s worst. . .without any loss of life. . .and without any serious injury.
