ST. LOUIS (KMOX) – It’s almost a pastime among nostalgics in St. Louis to complain about Lambert airport, but in Kansas City the situation really is bad. Voters there just approved construction of a new KCI. Some are hoping once their new airport opens it’ll result in flights skipping St. Louis and stopping there instead.

Southwest has been using Lambert more as a connecting hub for passengers. We asked aviation consultant Michael Boyd if Lambert officials should be on the defensive.

“Of course, it’s an airport’s job to try to steal traffic from other airports, but it’s probably not going to happen because of the new terminal, but what will happen is that now Southwest will be able to connect more people through Kansas City,” he says.
