Fort Wayne Air Show Impact on Travel to FWA
Fort Wayne, Ind. – Due to expected traffic increases and road closures for the 2016 Fort Wayne Air Show, hosted by the Indiana Air National Guard 122nd Fighter Wing, we encourage all passengers traveling out of FWA on September 10-11 to plan for additional travel time to FWA. Passenger flights are not impacted by the Fort Wayne Air Show and will operate as scheduled.
All terminal traffic will be routed from Airport Expressway through a traffic checkpoint to Airport Drive and then directly to our terminal road loop. Traffic will exit the area via Airport Drive. Passengers and persons picking up or dropping off passengers will be allowed access to the airport area. Short term, long term and economy parking lots at FWA will operate as usual and be available for passenger use. No parking for Fort Wayne Air Show attendees is available at FWA.
We expect that the road closures and traffic increases will take effect from roughly 8:00 AM – 6:00 PM on September 10-11, 2016. Passengers are encouraged to visit fwairport.com or facebook.com/flyfortwayne for updated traffic information on those dates.
