Ahead of the traditionally-busy holiday travel season, Fort Wayne International Airport has reopened Terminal Drive, allowing customers to once again stop curbside to drop-off and pick-up passengers. The drive has been closed to traffic since July 2021 as part of FWA’s West Terminal expansion and rehabilitation project.
For the past 18 months, airport visitors were routed through temporary drives as the airport underway an extensive exterior facelift.
As part of the upgrade, the improved curb has an extended canopy that covers all three lanes. It also has a rolled curb to help people with mobility issues.
“With the welcomed wave of holiday travel over the next few days, and weeks, we are happy to have the terminal drive back open to traffic,” said Scott Hinderman, executive director of airports. “Not only does this make for a smoother airport experience for everyone, it also makes for a great first impression for those visiting friends and family this holiday season. We are proud of the new terminal drive and curb front.”
FWA says its rental car facilities are also back to full capacity. The new terminal curb includes a rental car return lane.
