Single-Visit Passes & Annual Memberships Are Available

Passengers at St. Louis Lambert International Airport’s (STL) busiest terminal have a major new amenity to make their trip more comfortable and relaxing.  Wingtips St. Louis, the first and only common-use lounge at STL, has opened in Terminal 2 across from Gate E31.  Terminal 2 serves Southwest Airlines and will welcome WOW Air in May with its new Trans-Atlantic international service to Iceland.

The term “common use” means members and their guests do not need to be a frequent flyer, premium member or ticketed on any particular airline.  The lounge provides guests with an upscale environment to relax, refresh and recharge while they wait for their flights.

Complimentary high-speed Wi-Fi is available to all guests.  Guests can recharge themselves and their devices with power outlets available throughout the lounge and portable power banks available by request.

Every traveler will have access to complimentary in-lounge amenities, including a food buffet with snacks throughout the day and hot options for breakfast and dinner.  Complimentary non-alcoholic beverages and selection of spirits, wines and beers are available for guests 21 and older.

“We are excited to expand Wingtips to St. Louis,” Airport Terminal Services (ATS) President Sally Leible said.  “Airport lounges are changing, and we know that travelers want an upscale airport lounge experience regardless of the airline they are flying.  People expect greater flexibility and the amenities to make their air travel experience more pleasant.  Our members and guests now have a place in Terminal 2 where they can escape the bustle of the airport and unwind prior to their flight.”

ATS, which is based in St. Louis, owns and operates Wingtips.

“We are excited for the opening of STL’s first common-use club because it has been one of the amenities most requested by our passengers,” Airport Director Rhonda Hamm-Niebruegge said.  “With demand and growth at Terminal 2 because of new non-stop routes on Southwest Airlines and a new international carrier this spring, Wingtips St. Louis offers travelers great options for rest and relaxation, refreshments or a more private place to do business at the airport.”

St. Louis is the second Wingtips location in the nation, joining the lounge at New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport.  Any guest from any airline and any class of airline ticket is welcome.

Travelers can access Wingtips several ways.  Single-visit passes (walk-ins welcome) are $38 and can be purchased on-line or in-person.  Annual memberships start at $75 and corporate packages are also available.  All can be purchased at and in-person.

In addition, Wingtips has multiple membership network partners.  Terminal 2 served nearly eight million passengers in 2017.  Southwest Airlines is STL’s largest carrier, which will serve 45 non-stop markets this spring with the addition of new flights to San Jose, Calif. (SJC) and Sacramento, Calif. (SMF) beginning April 8, 2018.  WOW air begins flights four days-per-week service to Iceland’s Keflavik International Airport (KEF) beginning May 17, 2018.
