Welcome to the MidAmerica St. Louis Airport
Master Plan Update Website!

The County of St. Clair, owner and operator of MidAmerica St. Louis Airport (BLV), through its Public Building Commission, would like to welcome you to the BLV Airport Master Plan website.  The Airport has begun the process of preparing an update to the existing Airport Master Plan.  Since the acceptance of the last Master Plan several new exciting events have happened at BLV.  This website will help you find up to date information about the Airport Master Plan and the schedule of future public coordination meetings.  The site will also explain the parts of a Master Plan and outline the FAA guidance used in its preparation.

These are great times for MidAmerica St. Louis Airport.  In the past three years alone, total annual air passengers at BLV have increased from 65,000 in 2015 to 160,000 in 2016 (145% increase) to over 244,000 in 2017.  In 2016, BLV was the second fastest growing passenger airport in the United States, second to Stillwater OK.

This Airport Master Plan will focus on core landside area needs with an emphasis on the Air Passenger Terminal’s capacity and supporting public access roadways.  The  Passenger Terminal Building was originally designed and opened prior to September 11, 2001.  This master plan will define modern design efficiencies to reduce normal day to day costs for the Airport.  The update will also consider additional options to provide passenger amenities and help create new revenue possibilities for the County.

You too can be an airport planner.  Use the links the Airports use.  Keep up to date on the direct numbers from the Bureau of Transportation Statistics.  Statistics are updated regularly.
