They say upgrades to the terminal include cosmetic updates to the terminal building, an extended canopy that covers the three lanes of traffic, and a rolled curb for accessibility. FWA’s rental car facilities are also now back open, and officials say there is a new rental car return lane at the front of the terminal building.

Officials note that with the busy holiday travel season, flyers are encouraged to arrive 90 minutes before their scheduled departure when flying with American, Delta, and United, and two hours prior to departure if traveling with Allegiant. For more information about FWA, visit their website.
