Fort Wayne International Airport Opens Expanded Terminal

Fort Wayne International Airport in Allen County, Indiana has opened the first major portion of its expanded terminal building as a part of the West Terminal Expansion and Rehabilitation Project.

The expanded terminal includes a new American Airlines ticket counter and check-in area, new American Airlines offices, renovated vestibules, and an updated seating area. The new space features floor to ceiling windows, a raised roof, new  signage, low-profile baggage scales, and the beginning of a cane trail for the visually impaired, which will run through the entire terminal building.

Scott Hinderman, Executive Director of Airports, said:

“We are excited to welcome passengers into the first finished portion of the West Terminal Expansion Project. This will give people a glimpse at what the rest of the terminal will look like as we move toward opening new areas and completing the project. The Airport Authority staff looks forward to passengers enjoying some of the new amenities, as well as the new look of FWA moving forward.”

In addition to the upgraded interior, a portion of the airport’s terminal drive has also opened to allow passengers to be dropped off at the curb.
