Airport Codes, Can Anyone Help?

Mon Jan 22, 2001 9:47 am

Is there a web site that lists all of them so i can figure out what eveyone is talking about. I know all of the Canadian ones but the rest of the world are hard except for a few like JFK and MIA

Thanks for the help,

This site lists a lot
and there is also one at, but it is not a list: you enter the city or the IATA code and it gives you the result.

There are over 9000 codes at

and if you want maps showing the location of the airport in question you can get all the info you want at

This site is perhaps a little tricky to operate, but I'm sure you will get the hang of it after a few minutes
