A Beginner's Guide to International Airport Codes 

There is a  global standard for identifying airports, developed by the International Air Transport Association (IATA). Each code is a three-letter shortcut that represents the airport you're flying to or from – think of them as little geographical hashtags!

Now, these codes can seem like a random mix of letters, but there's usually a method to the madness. Often, they're derived from the first letters of the city's name or the name of the airport. Like, ATL stands for Atlanta, and LAX for Los Angeles. Sometimes, though, the code might come from an older name for the airport or the surrounding area, which is why they can be a bit confusing!

Understanding these codes is key for us in aviation. They help ensure that baggage ends up in the right place, they make booking flights easier, and they keep the whole worldwide air traffic control system running smoothly.

And guess what? There are over 10,000 of these codes in use today! While you won't need to memorize every single one, you'll get to know the main ones pretty quickly, especially the ones you work with regularly.
