Airline Codes

Airline codes are a two-letter designator code assigned by IATA to all airlines throughout the world.  These can also be referred to as IATA airline designators or IATA reservation codes. They are published twice annually in both the IATA’s Standard Schedules Information Manual and in IATA’s Airline Coding Directory.

This code is essential for the existence and identification of the airport in the aviation industry. It proves its existence and affiliations with IATA, who is the industry leader.

These designators identify the airline for all its commercial purposes, including: reservations, timetables, tickets, tariffs, air waybills and interline telecommunications.

These codes are revisited and approved every 6 months.
