Abstract:

Due to several factors, which include increased traffic and enroute traffic flow restrictions, arriving and departing users of the St. Louis Airport have experienced increasing delays. The hourly traffic count at St. Louis-Lambert has increased considerably with a projection of further increase. American Airlines plan to double their daily operations and Eastern, Trans World and Ozark have announced plans to increase flight operations during the coming year. In view of these projections, St. Louis Tower and Kansas City Center were asked to collectively develop a working group, consisting of facility officers, staff, supervisors and controllers. The working group concerned themselves with existing constraints and projected resources necessary to accommodate future traffic demands. This report is the result of those efforts by the working group.
