St Louis services resume postTornado

first_imgOperations have resumed to and from Lambert-St Louis International Airport after a severe storm damaged parts of the airport’s main terminal on Good Friday. Travellers at the airport were forced to flee from flying shattered glass and metal as the storm struck directly into the C Concourse while other passengers were holding their breaths, riding out the tornado inside aircraft parked at the tarmac, Fox 31 Denver reported. In an online statement the airport has since reported that up to 90 percent of flights were back in the air by Easter Monday, shifting American Airlines, Cape Air, AirTran and Frontier Airlines services to alternative Concourses.   The C terminal will remain closed until further notice, however, officials have organised new food services in the expanded terminals B and D to accommodate increased flights throughout the week. Meanwhile, travellers returning to the city after Easter holidays may find themselves without car transportation, with the airport reporting “extreme damages to vehicles during the storm”. Parking fees for travellers with storm damaged vehicles have been waived, while the airport extended its post-storm fee waiving policy on customers exiting parking lots until Monday evening.
