Fort Wayne International Airport (IATA: FWA, ICAO: KFWA, FAA LID: FWA) is a joint civil-military public airport located seven miles (11 km) southwest of the central business district of Fort Wayne, in Allen County, Indiana, United States. This airport is publicly owned by Fort Wayne/Allen County Airport Authority.
The airport contains one terminal, the Lieutenant Paul Baer Terminal. Passenger service is offered to five larger airline hubs of Atlanta, Chicago, Dallas-Fort Worth, Detroit, and Minneapolis-Saint Paul annually serving approximately 600,000 passengers. The airport has a 600,000-square-foot (56,000 m2) air cargo center located on the southwest side. The center was occupied by Kitty Hawk Aircargo, which operated a hub and spoke operation out of Fort Wayne until October 30, 2007, shortly after the carrier filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy. Fort Wayne International is also home to a maintenance base for Pinnacle Airlines.

“If men could menstruate ... clearly, menstruation would become an enviable, boast-worthy, masculine event: Men would brag about how long and how much.... Sanitary supplies would be federally funded and free. Of course, some men would still pay for the prestige of such commercial brands as Paul Newman Tampons, Muhammed Alis Rope-a-Dope Pads, John Wayne Maxi Pads, and Joe Namath Jock ShieldsFor Those Light Bachelor Days.”
—Gloria Steinem (b. 1934)
“Airplanes are invariably scheduled to depart at such times as 7:54, 9:21 or 11:37. This extreme specificity has the effect on the novice of instilling in him the twin beliefs that he will be arriving at 10:08, 1:43 or 4:22, and that he should get to the airport on time. These beliefs are not only erroneous but actually unhealthy.”
—Fran Lebowitz (b. 1950)
