Accessibility

In accordance with the requirements of Title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act of 2010 (“ADA”), the Fort Wayne-Allen County Airport Authority (“Airport Authority") will not discriminate against qualified individuals on the basis of disability in its services, programs or activities.

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.

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 Joe Marana, ADA Coordinator at (260) 446- 3426 or email operationsspecialist@fwairport.com as soon as possible but no later than 48 hours before the scheduled event.

The ADA does not require the Airport Authority to take any action that would fundamentally alter the nature of its programs or services, or impose an undue financial or administrative burden.

Complaints that a program, service, or activity of the Airport Authority is not accessible to persons with disabilities should be directed to Joe Marana, ADA Coordinator at (260) 446- 3426 or email jmarana@fwairport.com.

The Airport Authority will not place a surcharge on a particular individual with a disability or any group of individuals with disabilities to cover the cost of providing auxiliary aids/services or reasonable modifications of policy, such as retrieving items from locations that are open to the public but are not accessible to persons who use wheelchairs.
