Hi All

As you all might know, timeschedules are relative often equipped with the A/C-type along with the scheduled dep./arr. And most of the timeschedules have similar 3-letter abbreviations eg.:

100 for a Fokker 100
310 for an Airbus A310,
AN4 for an Antonov 24,
B11 for a BAC One-eleven
J31 for a BAe Jetstream 31 and so forth

These abbreviations a slightly different from the (mostly) 4-letter ICAO code-designators.

So here's my question:

Does any of you know where I can find the standard for these 3-letter codes, used in timeschedules. (I've all-ready got the ICAO-code list).

Any help would be highly appreciated

Best regards
Dan

Hi Dan!

Try at www.iata.org , they have several downloadable documents at their site, maybe you can find the aircraft code list there as well?

Concorde is SSC, and I think there is a 32S for the A320-200. And the 777 can also be plain old 777, not just 772 and 773.

Hello,

B737-700 -- 73G (according to VARIG timetable and amadeus.net). For the others, I believe they're 736, 738 and 739.

Correction:

32S (= A320 series) is the symbol that an airline use when they don't know which A320 family member will be used. So, it can mean 319, 320 or 321;

330 and 340 are the generic symbols for A330 and A340, and they're used when an airline don't know which of the models in fleet will be used (330 = 332 or 333 if an airline has both; same for 340). Meanwhile, it's very much commom to see 332, 333, 342 and 343 in timetables.

Others to be added: EM2 - Embraer EMB-120 Brasília; EM3: ERJ-135; EM4: ERJ-145.

Regards,

TP343, São Paulo, Brazil.

Hi All

Thanks a lot for your responses, most of them I got all-ready, but thanks anyway. What I looked for was in fact some kind of standard, which had all the abbreviations used in timetables. The IATA link, didn't seem to give me that. There is a company called OAG (www.oag.com) who takes care of a lot of I-net based schedules, and also here I didn't find what I looked for. My own list consists on 7 different timetables, and covers pretty much all the common aircrafts, but when it comes to the more "seldom" ones, it doesn't seem to cope. eg: Beechcraft 100 King Air (BE1?/BEC?), russian aircrafts ?? etc. etc.
Well I'll keep on searching.

Thanks again.

Best regards
Dan
