The United States Transportation Security Administration (TSA) has named Lambert-St. Louis International Airport as the newest gateway airport for Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport.
The TSA said that the designation allows certain pre-cleared general aviation operations, including corporate aircraft, charter flights and on-demand operations, to fly directly from Lambert-St. Louis to Reagan National. Currently the TSA allows general aviation flights that meet certain conditions to land at the airport. These conditions include a requirement that the aircraft must arrive from one of 20 gateway airports, and flight crews must be vetted and passengers screened.
