Scheduled jet flights began in 1967 on United Caravelles (United had been using the turboprop Vickers Viscount at Baer Field for several years).
United's jets were soon joined by Delta Douglas DC-9s.
The oldest original Baer Army Air Field hangar, Hangar No. C&S merged with Delta Air Lines in 1953 and Delta is the airport's longest-serving carrier, having served the airport in one form or another ever since.
In 1953 the airport's current terminal opened, replacing a converted military structure.
During the period immediately following deregulation in the late 1970s through the early 1980s, Air Wisconsin, Piedmont Airlines (later US Airways), and Republic Airlines were several of the airlines that had begun service to Baer Field.
In addition to Delta, United, and later American, locally based Hub Airlines and other regional airlines flew to the airport in the 1960s and 1970s.
The airport has one terminal, the Lieutenant Paul Baer Terminal.
Passenger flights reach eight airline hubs of Atlanta, Chicago, Charlotte, Dallas/Fort Worth, Detroit, Minneapolis-Saint Paul, Newark Liberty International Airport, and Philadelphia along with flights to Orlando, Punta Gorda (serving Fort Myers and Sarasota), Tampa, Phoenix, and seasonal service to Myrtle Beach.
The new permanent terminal had an air traffic control tower, an observation deck, and the "Look-Out Dining Room" restaurant with views of the ramp below.
TWA, the first airline to serve Fort Wayne at what is now Smith Field, ended flights from Baer Field in 1963.
