Smartphone users now will get a cleaner, easier-to-use website for checking out the situation at Lambert-St. Louis International Airport, officials said.

Starting today, travelers who go to on their phone browser will automatically be transferred to the airport's new mobile site, said airport spokesman Jeff Lea.

"It still offers all of the same information, but with a more efficient, convenient layout for mobile phone users," Lea said, adding that the standard website view still will be available from a phone.

Also, Lambert launched a live-data feed for parking availability at the airport’s two terminal garages and four Super Park lots. Users can click on the parking options to get rates, directions and maps.

"From a customer service point of view, we think this is a great addition for our travelers because a majority of them use their phones on the way" to the airport, director Rhonda Hamm-Niebruegge said.
