like heathrow/london is IATA:LHR or ICAO:EGLL

tehran: IATA: THR ICAO: OIII

the "O" in ICAO codes are used for the '[Arabian World' ,:

UAE is OM, Iran is OI england is EG ect ect

and for IATA code:

from WIKIPEDIA

While the IATA codes are the most familiar airport codes to passengers, the 4-letter ICAO airport codes are becoming increasingly common within aviation. All international flights are flight-planned and tracked using ICAO (International Civil Aviation Organization) designators, and most GPS databases use ICAO codes to avoid conflicts with three-letter navigation-aid codes. Many countries, such as Canada, no longer use IATA codes in their official aeronautical publications.


that answer your question

People who make codes and abbreviations for no apparent reason (like when there already exists a perfectly useable system) should be dragged out of their houses by their hair, tied to the nearest tree, and shot by a firing squad consisting of local juvenilles and ex-cons.

That system does seem to make more sense, although i do like the DXB code, i supose a system where you know where a place is even if you dont know the exact airpot makes more sense.

cuz the IATA code has been used for a longer time, and in airports they put the IATA code on your baggage

the ICAO code is better IMO because it shows you WHERE the airport is, what country it is in, and what region,

the IATA code has only 3 letters, thats also why some airports use the same IATA code

some ariports have basically the same ICAO and IATA code,

In the United States, the ICAO codes are usually the same as the IATA code, with a prefix of "K" - LAX is KLAX. Canada follows a similar pattern, where a prefix of "C" is usually added to an IATA code to find the ICAO code - YYZ is CYYZ. In the rest of the world the codes are unrelated, as the IATA code is phonic, so how the name would sound and the ICAO code is location-based; for example, Charles de Gaulle ICAO:LFPG, IATA:CDG.

okk.....



anaywas


ICAO is also responsible for issuing alphanumeric aircraft type codes that contain 3 or 4 characters. These codes provide the identification that is typically used in flight plans. An example of this is the Boeing 747 that would use (depending on the variant) B741, B742, B743,744, and the new 748 etc or for the a340 for example, a342, a343, a345, a346

ICAO is an agency of the UN, while IATA is is an international industry trade group of airlines headquartered btw in Montreal

ALSO, ICAO defines the protocols for air accident investigation followed by transport safety authorities in countries signatory to the Convention on International Civil Aviation, commonly known as the Chicago Convention (NTSB for example)

Quote:
IATA was formed in April 1945, in Havana, Cuba. It is the successor to the International Air Traffic Association, founded in The Hague in 1919, the year of the world's first international scheduled services. At its founding, IATA had 57 members from 31 nations, mostly in Europe and North America. Today it has over 270 members from more than 140 nations in every part of the globe.
The main objective of the organisation is to assist airline companies to achieve lawful competition and uniformity in prices.

IATA is a 'trade organiziation', and some countries may not be a part of it

ICAO is the UN, its, OFFICIAL

Though not yet announced I guess Emirates will have such service soon as flights from Middle East to Canada are increasing. Etihad Airways already have flights from Abu Dhabi to Toronto while Royal Jordanian will start nonstop flights next month to Montréal

Dubai airport's passenger throughput crosses 8m
Staff Report



Dubai: Passenger throughput at Dubai International Airport, the busiest in the Middle East, crossed the eight million mark in the first quarter this year, an increase of 17.7 per cent over the corresponding period in 2006, a statement said.

The airport handled a total of 8.15 million passengers from January to March, compared to 6.89 million in the corresponding period of 2006.

January was the busiest month with 2.9 million passengers, while February was the slowest at just over 2.5 million passengers.

With a total of 28.78 million passengers in 2006 the airport registered an increase of over 16 per cent over 2005.

Passenger traffic is expected to reach 33 million this year and up to 60 million by 2010.

The total tonnage of cargo handled during the period under review reached 362,919 tonnes against 334,329 tonnes during the first quarter of 2005, a substantial increase of 8.6 per cent.

March was the busiest month for cargo with over 132,400 tonnes, while January and February had a marginal difference at just over 115,000 tonnes for both.

There were a total of 63,494 aircraft movements during the period under review, an increase of 9.2 per cent over the first quarter of 2005.

With over 21,922 aircraft movements, January was the busiest month, slightly over March (21,847) and February (19,725).

Shaikh Ahmad bin Saeed Al Maktoum, President of Dubai Civil Aviation and Chairman of Emirates Group, said that the report is very encouraging and will set the tempo for the remainder of the year.

He noted that after a successful year throughout 2006, Dubai International Airport is looking forward to repeating the feat this year.

"The region's aviation sector is the world's fastest growing, and Dubai being the regional hub for trade, tourism and aviation, a consistent increase in passenger throughput at DIA shouldn't come as a surprise," he added.

Traffic registers 17.7% rise in first quarter

An increase of 9 per cent in aircraft movement during the furst quarter of 2007- An increase of 17.7 per cent in passenger movement compared to the last year figures.- In terms of cargo, the growth is almost 9 per cent compared with last year.- A total of 115 scheduled airlines and 25 frequent charter airlines operating to 200 destinations.
