The Welcome Center at FWA
We are currently in the process of reactivating our Hospitality Host Program after its suspension due to COVID-19. At this time Hosts are scheduled on a limited basis as we work to fill volunteer positions. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause you. As an airport community we are all doing our best to ensure that the safety of our volunteers and the traveling public is our highest priority. We look forward to bringing this service back full-force to our community! If you are interested in volunteering at the airport, please contact Lexi Thomas, Customer Experience Supervisor at email@example.com or 260-446-3433.
It’s no secret that air travel can be stressful for many people. Hospitality PAWS is Fort Wayne International Airport’s answer to the stress that passengers may feel when beginning their trips. FWA aims to give passengers a calm and comforting travel experience through a group of fully insured and highly trained certified therapy dogs and handlers.
FWA’s Hospitality PAWS program is currently made up of four handler/dog teams, with each dog being a different breed and possessing a unique personality. The PAWS teams come to the airport multiple times a week for two-hour shifts, with more frequent visits during higher traffic seasons such as the holidays and spring break. All of the therapy dog teams are certified by the Alliance of Therapy Dogs.
Hospitality PAWS handlers and dogs will be wearing nametags - say hi if you see a volunteer team working in the terminal!
If you have any questions about the Hospitality PAWS Program, please contact Katie Robinson, Marketing Specialist.
