Security & Regulations
Traveling can be stressful - here at FWA we strive to make it as stress-free as possible. To help make your trip as easy as possible, be sure to check out these tips from the Transportation Security Administration.
What to Know Before you Travel:
- Security Screening (Pat Downs, Pre Check)
- Traveling with Food or Gifts
- Liquid Rules: 3-1-1 for Carry-Ons
- Acceptable Identification at the Checkpoint
- Prohibited Items
- FAA's PackSafe Website
TSA and Special Needs:
TSA PreCheck is a program through the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) to create a more efficient, expedited screening process for qualified travelers. Keep your shoes, jacket and belt on; your laptop in its case; 3-1-1 compliant liquids in your bag; and enjoy a better overall travel experience. TSA PreCheck allows low-risk travelers to experience faster, more efficient screening at participating U.S. airport checkpoints for domestic and international travel.

Airport Emergency Services
Passenger safety is a priority at Fort Wayne International Airport, which is why we staff our very own Public Safety Department (PSD). The Airport PSD is staffed 24 hours each day to provide law enforcement, firefighting and emergency medical services to customers and facilities at the Airport. Airport Public Safety Officers are cross trained to provide the help that is needed to keep customers and the public safe while on airport property.
In the event of an aircraft incident, structure fire, or other emergency our airport public safety department responds immediately. PSD will also activate firefighting or medical mutual aid assistance as needed from the Indiana Air National Guard, City of Fort Wayne, the Allen County Police and Fire Departments, or the Indiana State Police. This type of community partnership provides a greater first responder crew strength and paramedic level medical assistance at the Fort Wayne International Airport.
