Airport officials are celebrating recent growth of the facility south of Fort Wayne and a successful year. A new jet bridge and cell phone parking lot were opened in 2015. A federal grant will pay to rehab the main runway.

“Traffic is up 15% year-over-year and we want to take a week to celebrate that growth with those who made it possible,” said Executive Director of Airports Scott Hinderman. “It’s been one year since we launched nonstop flights to two new destinations and the community has been incredibly supportive – we can’t thank them enough for choosing FWA for their travel needs.”  FWA Jetway

The week includes surprise gifts and honorary hosts handing out the famous cookies. WANE-TV’s Terra Brantley and Brett Thomas will wear the blue vests and greet fliers on Tuesday.
