St. Louis leaders meeting to discuss Lambert Airport privatization

St. Louis-Lambert International Airport

ST. LOUIS, MO —  Mayor Lyda Krewson will update the Lambert Airport Commission Wednesday on efforts to privatize management of the airport.

City leaders are setting up an advisory team to review the idea.

Supporters say a lease agreement for managing the city owned airport would increase efficiency and allow the city to collect millions of dollars to use on other services.
