ST. LOUIS, Mo. (KMOX) – Up to 500 flights and 50,000 people are expected to walk through Lambert’s main terminal today, making it one of the busiest travel days of the year, according to airport spokesman Jeff Lea.

“This year unlike last year, I think they’re predicting some snafus with the weather on the east coast,” he told KMOX.

Adding, “If there are any delays or cancellations at any major airport, you’re going to see that ripple effect.”

As of 6 a.m. two flights to Newark have been cancelled. Check HERE for up to date flight information.

Lea also reminds anyone picking up travelers that they can’t linger in the pickup area.

“We suggest you use the cellphone lots, use you’re mobile phones, contact you’re party make sure they’re with their luggage ready to go,” he said.
