SITA issued an important reminder on Tuesday that 1 December 2008 is the cut-off date for airports wishing to register their three letter IATA airport codes with .aero, the SITA-sponsored internet domain for the air transport industry.

From 1 December, these unique IATA location identifiers will no longer be reserved exclusively for airports but will be available for registration to any qualifying organization or individual, on a first-come-first-served basis and through accredited registrars.

The .aero domain is already used by over 6,000 members of the aviation community and more than 210 airports have registered to use their three letter airport code including: Dusseldorf, Manchester, Singapore, Los Angeles and San Francisco.

Pierre-Yves Benain, SITAs Head of Product Line Integration Solutions, said, We want to be sure that airports realise that from 1 December 2008, their three letter code within the .aero domain could be used by another party.

Over the last four months we have experienced a significant rise in registrations as airports recognise the importance of maintaining control over their three letter codes, as well as the numerous advantages of the .aero domain for the community from both a branding and operational point of view. We expect a further surge in demand as 1 December approaches and the three letter codes will be made available to others.
