In the early days of flight, airports were identified by the two-letter city codes that the National Weather Service used when recording weather data. But, as flying became more popular and other cities elected to build airports this system of airport identifiers became impractical.
The FAA airport codes and IATA airport codes we use today are a system of three-letter airport abbreviations that are associated with and identify specific airports around the world. Building on this, the International Civil Aviation Organization's four-letter code locates airports by a system of letters designating the country, region, city and finally the airport. These ICAO codes are used by most countries in their formal, official publications. When using our search form it is easy to locate ICAO airport codes. All airports are first listed with the three-letter FAA/IATA code and where available the ICAO airport code follows.
Pilots, tourists and travel agents are just a few of the many people who have a use for airport codes. Airports can be easily found using our search form by typing the first few letters of the City, State, or airport code. In addition a map view is available for most major airports, just click on "View Map."
Airport codes are also used by commercial airlines, general-aviation, by civilians, and even the military. The codes show up on airline tickets, baggage claim forms and luggage tags. In all cases they specify a particular airport, instantly recognizable by merely a glance at the specific code.
