IATA code

from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

IATA codes are codes issued by the International Air Transport Association (IATA), which are primarily used to mark airports and airfields , airlines and aircraft types .


The IATA airport codes consist of three letters (e.g. FRA for Frankfurt am Main) and are therefore often referred to as 3LC (for three letter code ) in internal parlance in the aviation industry .

Parallel to the IATA airport codes , there are the ICAO codes , which consist of four letters (e.g. EDDF for Frankfurt am Main), with the first two letters used to break down into regions and countries worldwide.
