Fort Wayne International Airport Increases Restricted Area Security


June 15, 2004 By

FORT WAYNE, Ind. - Fort Wayne International Airport (FWA) has selected Bioscrypt's V-Smart readers to verify individual access to sensitive areas of the airport. FWA is owned and operated by the Fort Wayne-Allen County Airport Authority and is served by seven major carriers.
