ST. LOUIS, Mo. (KMOV.com) -

Passenger flights continue to increase at St. Louis Lambert International Airport but one thing is missing, Lambert has no direct flights to Europe.

A new incentive, up to $1 million over several years to any European carrier could initiate such flights

The money would be used to market St. Louis in Europe. The St. Louis County Port Authority is floating a plan to offer marketing money to airlines such as British Airways or Luthansa so they can advertise St. Louis to their customers.

Money for the Port Authority comes from rent paid by River City Casino.
