Mobile boarding pass now accepted at Fort Wayne International Airport
Fort Wayne, Ind. – The Fort Wayne-Allen County Airport Authority is pleased to announce that Fort Wayne International Airport (FWA) is now equipped to accept mobile boarding passes for all Delta Air Lines, American Airlines, and Allegiant flights. The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) checkpoint may scan an e-boarding pass from a cell phone or tablet via text message, e-mail, or an airline’s mobile app, allowing passengers to navigate through the airport and onto their flight with only an electronic device in hand. Implementation is still underway for United Airlines boarding passes.
“We are excited to be joining the ranks of some of the nation’s busiest airports by offering this feature to our travelers,” said Scott Hinderman, Executive Director or Airports. “Business travelers, in particular, have been requesting this capability, and we are always open to innovations that will further accommodate the needs of our travelers.”
When entering the security checkpoint, the e-pass should be displayed on a mobile device, ready to be scanned, just like a paper pass. Passengers will need to present a government-issued photo ID along with their boarding pass. An ID is not required for those under 18 years of age. Passengers will need to show their e-pass again at the gate before boarding the plane.
All of FWA’s airlines – Allegiant, American, Delta, and United – have smartphone apps for easy check-in and travel information. Airlines have different policies regarding the use of e-boarding passes, however, so each carrier’s rules and regulations should be reviewed before using the e-pass. This information can be found on each airline’s website, links to these sites can be found at www.fwairport.com.
