To properly prepare, families must register by April 26 by completing the online form.
“I have seen the success of this event and encourage any family that experiences anxiety when flying to participate,” said Julie Curtis, South Bend International Airport’s Director of Marketing and Development. “The Wings for All program will help families and individuals of all ages become comfortable navigating airports.”
