Have been unsuccessful in googling a list from 001 until 999 with all airline assigned three digit codes.

Anybody care to point be in the right direction or should we try to complete this as a running thread ?

I reckon that a lot of them are defunct, as I already have plenty of blanks from 001 to 023 and guess that these would have been assigned at one time

001 - American
005 - Continental
006 - Delta
012 - Northwest
014 - Air Canada
015 - TWA
016 - United
020 - Lufthansa Cargo
023 - Fedex (formerly Flying Tigers ??)

etc

www.airlinecodes.co.uk Is a good site for searching IATA Accounting codes.

Sorry. Help. What are IATA Accounting Codes used for? Transfers of payments on a mixed airline ticket?

Incidentally, does the 001-999 coding mean that there can only be 999 airlines in the world?


Just found this site

http://www.siber.com/sib/travel/airline-codes.txt

where there are lots of codes

2 things - for IATA travel agents who issue tickets, to identify the plating carrier for the ticket, and for interline settlement between carriers.

This is a good website as it has all of the codes for the majority of airlines

Another thing I know it's used for is cargo - at least at DL. All DL cargo ID numbers began with 006.

They're also used for bag tracing.

3-digit codes, all carrier-specific, id the carrier issuing the tkt, no matter the carrier. For example all DL tkts begin with 006, NW 012, CO 005. When baggage tracing comes into play, the first 3 on the bag tags id the airline that issued the bag-tag and has nothing to do with the ticket and generally aren't used when taking a bag claim. When i start a trace, i use 2-letter carrier code followed by the last 6 digits of the bag tag, i.e. AF999999, or NW888888, or CO777777. The 3 digit carrier code mostly comes into play during irregular ops when reaccomodating passengers on OAL, becaues the carrier issuing the ticket does make a difference as to what we can do with the passenger. I have the luxury of having access to NW's system, but on the downside, some days I reissue more of their tkts than my own since there are quite a few agents (mostly Airlink or Mesaba, mainline NW not so bad) who don't know what they are doing! Hope all that made some sense.  cheerful

The numeric codes for the 240 or so IATA member airlines are in their membership list which also includes the IATA and ICAO codes.

So I assume that Blue Panorama (Italy)'s code 004 is recycled from somebody old that no longer exists? Who?

thanks for the replies -

Sflaflight has raised the question that I was actually driving at:

who are the old carriers that had the low codes, eg 002, 003, 004, 007, 008, 009, 010, 011, etc

There must be Branniff, Eastern, PanAm, British Caledonian, UTA etc out there, who are either defunct or disappeared through mergers, much like the good old 085 (Swissair / SR) having disappeared and merged into 724 with old Crossair, now Swiss / LX

any old time freight dogs reading this ??

A few numeric codes, mostly low numbers, for carriers that no longer exist. Fortunately I have all my old tickets in a couple of shoe boxes which permitted this research!

Braniff - 002
Airwest/Hughes Airwest - 003
Eastern - 007
National - 010
Western - 017
Canadian Pacific/CP Air/Canadian Airlines - 018
Pan Am - 026
British Caledonian - 121

You can find these numbers on almost every (e-)ticket you buy, as well as on your boarding passes. The ticket number will start with 3 digits that represent the airline.
