The Fort Wayne Airport is on the southwest side of town, near I 69. Indianapolis is approximately 2 hours or so from Fort Wayne (driving), Detroit is approximately 3 hours or so away.

Thanks Susan and have a great day!

The Fort Wayne Airport is the most convenient, however connections can be tricky. We find that Indianapolis is often more cost efficient, with a wider choice of flights. From the southwest side of Fort Wayne, it is about a 2 hour drive, almost all interstate.

You will love Fort Wayne! I lived on the SW side of town for 5 yrs, its a great spot. Close to the interstate, shopping, family friendly, lots of parks, tons of restaurants and very affordable as well.

I have moved now, but I still miss it. It has bigger city conveniences but still relatively small town atmosphere.
A good place to research the area is on City Data. You can find tons of information there as well as get feedback from folks who live there already.

Hi Susan... Following are airports I have flown out of the past couple years when not using the Fort Wayne Airport:

Detroit: 165 miles: 2hrs 40 min drive
Indy: 140 miles: 2hrs 30 min drive
South Bend: 95 miles: 1hr 45 min drive
Toledo: 100 miles: 1hr 40 min drive
Dayton: 125 miles: 2hr 30 min drive

We'll stay in touch.

Another option would be the Toledo (Ohio) airport which about 2 hours Northeast of Fort Wayne.
