Employment: The Airport Authority does not discriminate on the basis of disability in its hiring or employment practices and complies with all regulations promulgated by the U. S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission under Title I of the ADA.

Effective Communication: The Airport Authority will generally, upon request, provide appropriate aids and services leading to effective communication for qualified persons with disabilities so they can participate equally in the Airport Authority’s programs, services, and activities, including qualified sign language interpreters, documents in Braille, and other ways of making information and communications accessible to people who have speech, hearing, or vision impairments.

Modifications to Policies and Procedures: The Airport Authority will make all reasonable modifications to policies and programs to ensure that people with disabilities have an equal opportunity to enjoy all of its programs, services, and activities. For example, individuals with service animals are welcomed in the Airport Authority offices, even where pets are generally prohibited. The Airport Authority has also included a Video Relay Service videophone located in the Welcome Center for those persons with hearing impairment.

Anyone who requires an auxiliary aid or service for effective communication, or a modification of policies or procedures to participate in a program, service, or activity of the Airport Authority, should contact Katie Scherer, ADA Coordinator at (260) 446- 3427 or email as soon as possible but no later than 48 hours before the scheduled event.

Hidden Disability Sunflower Program

Fort Wayne International Airport is proud to participate in the Hidden Disabilities Sunflower Program. FWA is the first airport in Indiana to roll out this program. The Hidden Disabilities Sunflower Program aims to assist those traveling with invisible disabilities who may need a little extra patience, care, and explanation during their travel experience. The goal of implementing this program is to bring awareness to those with hidden, or invisible, disabilities and to remind airport staff to exercise extra compassion and empathy when working with these passengers and their families. This program does not allow for special treatment or expedited security screening, but is a reminder to airport staff to show extra compassion and allow time for extra assistance and let those traveling with these hidden disabilities to feel comfortable and confident.

Passengers participating in the Hidden Disabilities Sunflower Program are identified by the green sunflower product they choose to wear. FWA will have lanyards, bracelets, and pins available at no cost to passengers in the airport Welcome Center located directly across from the TSA Security Checkpoint. All airport and Airport Authority staff has been trained on the Hidden Disabilities Sunflower Program.

If you would like to request a Sunflower product prior to traveling, please contact Lexi Thomas, Customer Experience Supervisor, at 260-446-3433 or Learn more about the Hidden Disabilities Sunflower Program HERE.
