Know Before You Go!
The Airport Authority offices have permanently changed hours to: 8am - 4:30pm Monday through Friday with the office closed from 11:30am - 12:30pm for lunch.
FWA passengers, visitors, and employees are no longer required to wear a mask at the airport. The TSA will no longer enforce the security directive that requires masks to be worn inside the terminal building. If you are more comfortable wearing a mask during your travels, please feel free to continue to do so. Please check with your airline and connecting/final destinations for any specific requirements if you have questions or concerns.
Keeping FWA Safe and Healthy
- FWA is using a cleaning product that is an approved sanitizer against the human Coronavirus.
- Staff is wiping down high touch points multiple times daily. - This includes doorknobs, elevator buttons, handrails, ticket counters, seating areas, restrooms, etc.
- Additional hand sanitizing stations have been placed throughout the terminal building.
- Airline, TSA, restaurant, and car rental staff are paying special attention to sanitizing their leased areas and counter spaces.
The Airport Authority is encouraging passengers to stay informed and contact their air carrier with specific questions about their Covid restrictions and regulations via their websites, customer service departments, and social media.
- Passengers keep possession of boarding passes. Instead of handing their boarding pass to a TSA officer at the travel document podium, travelers should now place their boarding pass (paper or electronic) on the boarding pass reader themselves.
- Separate food for X-ray screening. Passengers should place their carry-on food items into a clear plastic bag and place that bag into a bin. TSA Precheck members do not need to remove items from their bags.
- Pack smart. Passengers should take extra care to ensure that they do not have any prohibited items, such as liquids, gels or aerosols in quantities greater than 3.4 ounces, in their carry-on bags (water bottles, shampoo). In response to COVID-19, TSA is allowing one liquid hand sanitizer container, up to 12 ounces per passenger, in carry-on bags.
- Real ID Deadline Extended. You now have until May 7, 2025 to upgrade your license to a Real ID. Following May 7, 2025 a Real ID will be mandatory in order to fly.
