Need Your IATA Designator Code?
As an airline one of the prerequisites for commercial distribution of your schedules data is to apply for an IATA Two Character Designator. Innovata can help streamline the application process. When you supply your schedules data to Innovata for use in our database our Supplier Relations team will review that all mandatory data elements are present and comply with IATA’s requirements. Our team will then notify IATA that you have submitted your schedules to Innovata and are ready for IATA to review your application.
While your application is being validated by IATA you may continue to send updates/changes to your schedule data to Innovata in preparation for distribution.
Innovata markets and distributes the Schedules Reference Service (SRS) global database which contains the schedules of all airlines who file their schedules updates with us. The mission of the SRS is to provide the industry with the most complete, neutral, and accurate source of schedules data.
The SRS is distributed under an exclusive strategic marketing partnership established in 2003 between Innovata as the database management company and IATA.
