Cheap Tickets to St. Louis Airport - Compare Cheap Flights to St. Louis Airport

Reaching to the banks of the legendary Mississippi River, St. Louis, Missouri combines the down-home charm of the American Midwest with a modern, cosmopolitan attitude. This city is most famous for baseball, beer, and being the birthplace of Poet Laureate Maya Angelou, but it’s brimming with surprises and bristling with history.

In the early days of the gold rush, St. Louis was a vital center for manufacturing and provisions for settlers heading west in search of adventure. That pioneer spirit is still alive and well here, inspiring the more than 21 million souls who visit each year.

Flights to St. Louis International Airport (STL) Lambert-St. Louis International Airport is both the largest and the busiest in Missouri, with 90 domestic and international destinations. It serves more than 13 million passengers each year. Two airlines, Air Choice One and Cape Air, use STL as a major hub, and it’s a Focus City for the Southwest, which makes finding cheap tickets to St. Louis easier than ever.

The airport is made up of 2 terminals, with Terminal 2 entirely reserved for Southwest. It’s 10 miles from downtown St. Louis, and directly connected to the city’s MetroLink rail line, which stops at both terminals. Two MetroBus lines serve Terminal 1, and also make use of the usual shuttle, taxi, and rental car services.

What to Do in St. Louis

St. Louis is known as the Gateway to the West, a designation celebrated by the tallest monument in the US. The Gateway Arch is an iconic feature of the skyline, gorgeously lit and surrounded by an open plaza featuring reflecting pools. If you’re not afraid of heights, you can hop on a special elevator for a bird’s eye view of the city.

The Wild West heritage of the city is readily apparent in many ways, and you can travel back to the past by cruising down the river on a 19th century replica of a paddleboat. But St. Louis is also a modern city, with world class culture and some incredible, engaging museums. The City Museum is probably the most unique, a strange and wonderful assemblage of repurposed industrial artifacts put together as a crazy indoor playground for kids and adults alike.

Advice for Tourists Visiting St. Louis

Weather in St. Louis swings between extremes, with biting winters and scorching summers. Spring and fall are both nice, but our money is on September, when you can still expect highs in the 80s. That’s also when the amazing Great Forest Park Balloon Race, the Big Muddy Blues Festival, and the St. Louis Art Fair are on.

If you’re planning to visit during one of these special events, you’ll want to book your accommodations early. You can get the best price on a great room with Skyscanner’s free hotel price comparison tool.
