There is a lot to love about nonstop service from Fort Wayne to the City of Brotherly Love, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Nonstop service from Fort Wayne International Airport (FWA) to Philadelphia International Airport (PHL) on American Airlines returned to the Summit City on June 7, 2018. This route created a much-needed gateway from Fort Wayne to the east coast – and beyond.

Nonstop service between FWA and PHL runs twice a day, with convenient morning and mid-afternoon departures. The 90-minute flight is quick and convenient, whether PHL is your destination or your connecting airport. 

Philadelphia International Airport offers over 130 destinations to connect to, making both domestic and international travel an easy one-stop connection from FWA. What are some of the destinations you can reach from PHL? If your travels are taking you to the east coast, make connections to Boston, New York City or Washington, D.C. On the international front, connections are available whether you’re heading to the Caribbean, Frankfurt, London, Paris, Punta Cana or San Juan. PHL is one of American Airlines’ largest hub airports. 

Business travel to or through Philadelphia is a cinch. PHL boasts more than 90 domestic connections and more than 35 international destinations – allowing for your business to happen all over the country or even the world. The airport also has quick access to the city and beyond via Philadelphia’s train system – an easy way to navigate and connect to many major east coast cities. 

Is Philadelphia your final destination? There is much to do and see in the city of art, history and cheesesteaks. Art enthusiasts will enjoy the Philadelphia Museum of Art, where fans of the Rocky movies can view the Rocky statue and take their turn at running up the famed museum steps. History buffs can’t miss out on seeing Independence Hall, National Constitution Center or the Liberty Bell. Foodies will love taking a bite out of an authentic Philly Cheesesteak and roaming the vendors at Reading Terminal Market.

Nonstop service from FWA to PHL offers many options for business and leisure travelers to connect to the world with only one-stop or to explore Philly! For fares, schedules and to book your flight, visit the American Airlines website,, or call (800) 433-7300.
