Fort Wayne International Airport to Celebrate National Chocolate Chip Cookie Day

Fort Wayne International Airport to Celebrate National Chocolate Chip Cookie Day 

Fort Wayne, Ind. – Fort Wayne International Airport (FWA) will be celebrating National Cookie Day on Tuesday, May 15, 2018 with some sweet treats for its passengers.  

Known for Hoosier Hospitality, and offering a fresh, locally made cookie upon arrival, FWA will be staying true to its reputation as “the cookie airport” for National Chocolate Chip Cookie Day. All arriving passengers will be given a freshly baked chocolate chip cookie from local bakery, Vanilla Bean Cookie Company by FWA Hospitality Hosts. Passengers leaving on departing flights won’t miss out, as airport staff will have cookies available at each airline ticket counter.  

One lucky winner will be randomly selected to win a copy of the beloved children’s classic “If You Give a Mouse a Cookie” throughout the day on FWA’s social media channels to celebrate National Chocolate Chip Cookie Day. The winner will be chosen on May 16, 2018. FWA has social media accounts on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.  
“Celebrating days like National Chocolate Chip Cookie Day is a fun way to say thank you to our passengers for flying out of FWA.” said Scott Hinderman, Executive Director of Airports, “With FWA’s commitment to delivering ‘Hoosier Hospitality’, and our longstanding cookie program, this is a nice tie-in to our mission to deliver excellent customer service to our passengers.” 
FWA’s cookie program dates back to 1999, when the Hospitality Host volunteer program began in the terminal. Among Hospitality Host’s various duties in the airport is handing each arriving passenger an individually wrapped, locally made cookie as a welcome to Fort Wayne. To date, FWA has given out over 2 million cookies to Fort Wayne visitors, and residents alike.
