The public airport is located to the southwest of Indianapolis, namely in the town of Marion County (Indiana). The airport stretches across the towns of Decatur and Wayne (two suburbs in Indianapolis) and occupies the area of more than 3 hectares.
One of the most interesting facts about the Indianapolis International Airport is that its passenger terminal was re-designed and re-constructed after the hectic terrorist attack that shook the world on September, 11, 2001. The airport has the second largest FedEx Express hub in the US. The hub was opened in 1988, but it has been expanded three times since that time.
As of today, the airport is owned and managed by the Indianapolis Airport Authority. The executive board of the Authority consists of eight members. The most influential of them are Barbara Glass (the President), Steve Dillinger (the Vice President), Alfred R.Bennett (Secretary) and Mario Rodriguez (Executive Director/CEO).
