Fort Wayne International Airport Takes Precautions for COVID-19
The Fort Wayne-Allen County Airport Authority (FWACAA) is taking the necessary steps to make sure that Fort Wayne International Airport (FWA) remains a safe and healthy environment for all passengers, guests, and employees during the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. Fort Wayne International Airport and Smith Field Airport continue to be open and operational. The Airport Authority offices are open on an adjusted schedule: 8am - 4:30pm Monday through Friday with the office closed from 11:30am - 12:30pm for lunch.
Keeping FWA Safe and Healthy
The Airport Authority is encouraging passengers to stay informed and contact their air carrier with specific questions about their flight via their websites, customer service departments, and social media.
Due to COVID-19, further precautionary measures have been taken to protect both staff and the traveling public at FWA.
Q. Is it safe to fly?
A. As states begin to reopen, travel restrictions are being lifted. Airlines are taking a number of precautions to ensure that the travel experience is as safe as possible. However, it is at the discretion of each passenger as to whether they continue with their scheduled travel plans. Our staff works diligently throughout the terminal building and airport campus to continuously provide a safe, clean, and sanitized terminal area for the traveling public.
Q. Will my flight be canceled?
A. Cancellations are at the discretion of each individual airline. We have seen changes and reductions in frequency and destinations as a result of COVID-19, as well as delays and cancellations. We encourage all passengers to check with their airline for any updates on their flight status (use the links above).
Q. What is being done to keep passengers safe during this time?
A. FWA staff has accelerated efforts to clean and disinfect the terminal building multiple times per day. Approved sanitizing cleaning product is being used, high touch areas are being wiped down multiple times per day, hand sanitizing stations can be found throughout the terminal, and TSA agents are now wearing face coverings and changing gloves more frequently. FWA has placed a table next to the TSA Checkpoint with complimentary face masks and hand sanitizer.
Q. What can I do to keep myself and others healthy while traveling?
A. We recommend following the CDC guidelines for safe social distancing while in the terminal, whether you are checking in for your flight or waiting at the gate. We also encourage passengers to wash their hands frequently, make use of hand sanitizer, and cough or sneeze into their elbow. While face masks are not mandatory at the airport, passengers and guests are encouraged to wear a facial covering when possible with all airlines having introduced some type of policy relating to face masks. If you are sick, or believe you have been exposed to the Coronavirus, we ask that you stay home and make changes to your travel plans.
Q. I am still scheduled to travel but have decided to cancel my flight. How can I do this?
A. Airlines are currently offering a number of options to alleviate the stress of canceling travel. Passengers can contact their airline through their 1-800 number, or their website (link to airlines and destinations page). Airlines have also opened up the ability to reach them through their social media channels and are offering alternative means of cancelling flights due to the current demand.
Q. Can I take hand sanitizer and disinfectant wipes in my carry-on bag?
A. Yes – TSA will allow hand sanitizer, disinfectant wipes, and pre-moistened hand wipes in your carry-on luggage. Hand sanitizer up to 12oz is allowed, while all other liquids must remain 3.4oz or less.
Q. Am I allowed to come into the airport to pick up my arriving passenger?
A. Guests are allowed inside the terminal building to pick up passengers when necessary. If possible, we encourage those doing an airport pick-up to wait in the Cell Phone Lot and pick their passenger up at the curb when they arrive. If you choose to come into the terminal building to wait for an arriving passenger we ask that you do not come in large groups, or linger in the terminal building longer than needed.
