2 Digit and 3 Digit ISO Codes of Airlines API

Airline 3 Digit Codes & 2 Digit Codes

Airline 3-digit codes and 2-digit codes are internationally recognized, standard codes designated by IATA for each actively operating airline in the world. Having access to this complete list of international airline codes has many advantages. Avoiding miscommunication, providing false or old data to your customers, and not having to deal with long names and getting lost in translation are just a few of those. Providing correct airline 3 digit codes and 2 digit code data is essential to get the users to choose and view the correct airline. Airline 3-digit codes and airline 2-digit codes are irreplaceable codes that do not typically change. There is a countless amount of codes that exist. So, having the opportunity to have them in one place and combine them with other databases offers especially developers a great advantage. 

Many companies in the aviation, travel and hospitality sector require this kind of data to power up their websites and apps. This helps provide the best platforms and improve the customer experience. When it comes to the country codes for flight tracking and airport schedule tracking, this particular database is exceptionally useful. Especially for airliners and airports, booking agencies, cargo transporters, corporate booking platforms, and countless more, an API that returns the correct airline codes is essential. That’s no surprise as we see this information typically on any business’ website in the market.
Can airline 3 digit codes and 2 digit codes change over time? Not typically, but yes if there is a strong justification. IATA can take certain aspects into consideration and agree with an airline’s request of code changes if the circumstances allow. That being said, sometimes two operating airlines can have the same IATA airline codes. This is why it is important to have a database that has other distinguishing details for airlines.

Country 2 Digit and 3 Digit Codes

There are two types of country codes that are internationally recognized and used: 2-digit and 3-digit country codes. Also known as “ISO-2” and “ISO-3” codes. 

The ISO (International Organization of Standardization) codes of countries are internationally recognized codes assigned to each country or a dependent area. They can be combinations of two or three letters. Three digit codes are mostly used for machine-readable passports. These codes are also visually associated with the countries they represent. You can often see them used at international events like sports matches where they are in a form of abbreviations like DNK (for Denmark), CHN (for China), and so on. 

For a complete data presentation to your customers, you can combine our Airline 3 Digit Codes Database with our Airlines Database, Airports Database, Countries Database and many more to provide access for your customers to all information on an airline, which country it is based in, all codes of that country as well as the airline, country codes, city codes and so much more!

3 Digit Airline Ticketing Codes

3 digit airline ticketing codes are the numbers of an airline which the ticket was issued on its stock. This is usually the same airline as the airline which is carrying out the actual flight.

For example: 

  • Continental Airlines codes: 2-letter code is CO, 3-letter is COA, and the IATA code is 005.
  • United Airlines 2-letter code is UA, 3-letter is UAL, and the IATA code is 016.
Two Digit Airline Codes

Airline 2 digit codes of countries on the other hand, are the most used ones. Their most popular usage is for internet country code top level domain, such as “.de”, “.fr”, “.jp”. Also, they are used as a base for some other codes like currency codes. Two digit airline codes are are mainly used to provide convenience for communication via internet as well as air traffic management.
