Airport Identifier Codes

The airport code is a three letter designator for a commercial airport, or other travel point. These are the codes that airlines and pilots use to identify airports and are used in timetables, baggage tags, tickets, advertisements, Airline and Global Reservation Systems. There are approximately 9,000 of them in use of a total of 17,576 available. IATA in Geneva is responsible for the designation of these codes

From BOM (Chattrapathi Shivaji International Airport) to GAU (Lokpriya Gopinath Bordoloi International Airport Guwahati Airport), airports around the world are universally known by a unique three-letter code: the "International Air Transport Association (IATA) Location Identifier" in aviation terms. It's obviously much easier for pilots, controllers, travel agents, frequent flyers, computers and baggage handlers to say and write BOM than the Chattrapathi Shivaji International Airport in Mumbai, Maharastra but how did this practice start, and why are some airport codes easy to understand (DEL and HYD) while others seem to make absolutely no sense (AMD)?

When the Wright brothers first took to the air in 1903, there was no need for coding airports since an airport was literally any convenient field with a strong wind. However, the National Weather Service did tabulate data from cities around the country using a two-letter identification system. Early airlines simply copied this system, but as airline service exploded in the 1930's, towns without weather station codes needed identification. Some bureaucrat had a brainstorm and the three-letter system was born, giving a seemingly endless 17,576 different combinations. To ease the transition, existing airports placed an X after the weather station code. The Los Angeles tag became LAX, Portland became PDX, Phoenix became PHX and so on. Incidentally at the historic sand dune in Kitty Hawk where the first flight occurred the U.S. National Parks Service maintains a tiny airstrip called FFA—First Flight Airport.
