Fort Wayne International Airport Announces Spring Break Festivities
Fort Wayne, Indiana (March 22, 2021) – Spring is in the air, and Fort Wayne International Airport (FWA) is ready to welcome an increase in passenger traffic through the terminal during the Spring Break season with a little fun. FWA will be hosting Spring Break festivities for select flights beginning Monday, March 22, 2021 through Friday, April 9, 2021.
As we continue to navigate through the COVID-19 pandemic, FWA staff has planned a scaled-back Spring Break that encompasses all CDC guidelines while also celebrating those passengers who are choosing to travel. Passengers will enjoy increased Hospitality PAWS visits, pre-packaged FWA swag giveaways, appetizer samplings from MSE Branded Foods, beer sampling from Chapman’s Brewing, and chocolate samples from DeBrand Fine Chocolates.
Passengers traveling through the airport can also participate in a photo contest where one winner will win two roundtrip tickets to Las Vegas on Allegiant Air – FWA’s newest route that debuted in the summer of 2020. Passengers can take a photo in front of the Las Vegas themed backdrop on the second floor of the terminal building and share it to any of FWA’s social media channels directly, or by using the hashtag #FWAwhathappensinvegas.
For those who may not be ready to travel just yet, FWA is not leaving them out of the Spring Break celebrations and has special Las Vegas themed trivia planned on social media. Each Tuesday a new trivia question will be posted to FWA’s Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram pages as a part of “Trivia Tuesday”. Every person that correctly answers that week’s trivia question will be entered to win two roundtrip tickets to Las Vegas on Allegiant Air. Trivia questions will be posted on each Tuesday morning from March 16 to April 20.
“We always look forward to welcoming passengers traveling for Spring Break and are happy to offer complimentary treats and giveaways to start their vacation off right,” said Scott Hinderman, Executive Director of Airports. “While the pandemic continues to be something we are mindful of and diligent about in our daily operations, we are excited to welcome passengers back to the airport safely, while thanking them for choosing FWA during the Spring Break season.”
FWA’s Spring Break celebrations will run from Monday, March 22 to Friday, April 9. Times and availability for activities each day vary.
