Fort Wayne Airport Code

Fort Wayne Airport was established in 1925, when the city of Fort Wayne purchased over 200 acres of land from the local farmers. This land was used to construct the first airport in the city. The first commercial airline to serve Fort Wayne Airport was North Central Airlines, which flew between Chicago and Detroit. The airport also had a contract with United Airlines to provide service to other cities in Indiana and Michigan. During the 1940s and 1950s, Fort Wayne Airport saw a significant increase in air traffic due to World War II and the subsequent economic boom that followed. In 1955, the airport opened its new terminal building and began providing scheduled flights to cities throughout the Midwest. In 1960, Fort Wayne Airport became an official international airport, serving destinations in Canada and Mexico as well as domestic locations. Since then, it has become one of the busiest airports in Indiana with a wide variety of destinations available for travelers.
