About Lambert St. Louis Intl Airport

Lambert St. Louis International Airport has a fascinating aviation history. The airport was the site of the first presidential flight and the location where Charles Lindbergh obtained his first civilian aviation job. The commercial airfield is named in recognition of Albert Lambert. He constructed the airport at his own expense and then leased the airfield to the city for $1.00 a year. The airport served as a military airfield during World War II.

After the war, the airport resumed commercial passenger service. To meet the increased demand for air travel, the city commissioned Minoru Yamasaki to design a new terminal building. The architect completed his futuristic structure in 1956. The terminal served as the architectural template for subsequent airports, such as Charles De Gaulle near Paris and John F. Kennedy in New York. Inside the terminal buildings, travelers can view a five-panel mural reflecting African Americans throughout aviation history. Charles Lindbergh’s personal plane hangs from the ceiling in Terminal 1. In pop culture, Lambert Field has been the backdrop of television shows and movies, including Seinfeld, Silence of the Lambs and Up in the Air.
