Chinese airline weighs Lambert as hub

ST. LOUIS (AP) — Progress is apparently being made in the effort to make St. Louis a hub for trade with China.

The Midwest-China Hub Commission announced Wednesday that China Cargo Airline is negotiating and studying the use of Lambert Airport as an international air cargo hub.

Mike Jones, chairman of the Midwest-China Hub Commission, says that while much work remains, the decision suggests that there is considerable interest in selecting St. Louis as a hub.

The Midwest-China Hub Commission was formed in 2009 and is a public-private collaboration among St. Louis region and state governmental and business leaders.
