ST. LOUIS (KMOX) – Lambert-St. Louis International Airport is a little brighter and a little less claustrophobic this morning.

Temporary walls were removed Monday night, which mostly affected those arriving on American and some smaller airlines.

“Customers coming off the D concourse can now exit through the C/D checkpoint,” airport director Rhonda Hamm-Niebruegge explained Monday. “They no longer have to walk through a corridor to get to the B” concourse’s exit.

They’ll find taller ceilings and more lighting, among other changes.

“The other exciting piece is that they’ll be able to see the new meet-and-greet area and what the new renovated baggage claim area is going to look like,” the former of which Hamm-Niebruegge said was requested by the Convention and Visitors Commission.

Some baggage carousels will close for sprucing up, while others which had been closed will now be uncovered.

In terms of tornado recovery, Hamm-Niebruegge said new windows are currently being installed on the street-side of Terminal One and the re-building of Concourse C continues.
