By The Numbers
Minutes from the Gateway Arch, St. Louis Downtown Airport is the third busiest airport in Illinois, after O’Hare and Midway in Chicago, and the second busiest in the St. Louis Metropolitan area.
The airport and its surrounding business park supports 1,800 jobs and contributes an estimated $584 million to the region.
The 2012 expansion of the primary runway allows large aircraft like the Boeing 757 and Airbus 320 to take off and land—generating new business. Now home to 26 aviation-related businesses, a land use plan was created as the first phase of a 20-year master plan for future develpment of the surrounding industrial business park at the airport.
