Fresno wanted to change their airport code to FYI [snip] Anybody else hear about this?
|Quoting JC5280 (Reply 7):|
Fresno Yosemite International is the airport name now, but the code will remain as FAT. Much like Denver International Airport is DIA, but will remain DEN. Did they have the option to change it when it moved from Stapleton? Or is the process much more complicated than that.
|Quoting CentralCA (Reply 9):|
According to this article, the Fresno City Council voted on Aug. 20 to change the airport code from FAT to FYI.
|Quoting LACA773 (Reply 10):|
Have any of our fellow airline employee friends know of any new service being initiated to FAT? I think this market could really use some new service even if it's with RJ's or even with something like the E70 etc.

Maybe if F9 Jet Express gets ahold of some extra CRJ-700 (QX) they can fly to FAT
|Quoting FATFlyer (Reply 12):|
That article was from 1996. Given all of the process to change the code of an existing airport, the city was basically told by the federal government that just a name change to Fresno Yosemite International wasn't a compelling enough reason to also change the FAT identifier.
