Advertising at the Airport

Airport advertising has been taken to a whole new altitude at FWA. When you choose to advertise at the airport, your company is exposed to the community's front door to economic development prospects, scientists, researchers, business executives and tourists. There are a variety of advertising possibilities in the FWA terminal from back-lit signs, to murals, to column wraps, to window clings, etc. The possibilities are endless!

The Fort Wayne-Allen County Airport Authority has partnered with Michiana Business Publications (the publishers of Business People magazine) to sell the advertising space in the terminal building.

Badges & Driver Training

An airport badge is required for all employees and tenants working/operating inside the air operations area (AOA) and any contractors performing work unescorted.  The badging process encompasses several steps and generally takes several days to complete.

Safety Management System

The Authority is dedicated to an airport operating environment that minimizes exposure to hazards and ensures continuous safety improvement.  The Authority encourages participation from its management staff, employees, airlines, tenants, business partners, and the traveling public in the reporting of hazardous conditions, incidents, and accidents.

Properties & Development

Fort Wayne is situated at the hub of nine major cities with: Chicago, Detroit, Cleveland, Toledo, Cincinnati, Indianapolis, Dayton, Louisville and Columbus, all within a 200 mile radius.  So when you locate at FWA you are placing yourself in the middle of the nation’s business network.

T-Hangar Rentals

FWA offers three types of T-Hangars to accommodate most small aircraft.  Leases are month-to-month with a one month deposit, and the T-Hangars are located off West Perimeter Road with convenient access to taxiway “G." 

Community Partners

Taking our service to a whole new altitude doesn't mean we "fly solo." In fact, we have many community and regional partners that work closely with the Fort Wayne-Allen County Airport Authority so we can better serve the region.
