World Airport Database with IATA Code, ICAO Code, Latitude and Longitude contains records of more than 11,000 airports around the world. The database is available in both Microsoft Excel Spreadsheet and Microsoft Access Database format. A significant number of records also contain information about the elevation or altitude of the airport (above sea level) and length of the airport as well. Latitude and longitude data is measured in degrees with up to eight decimal places. Elevation and length data is measured in feet. This database contains airports having an IATA (International Air Transport Association) code. Please note that having an IATA code does not necessarily means that it will also have an ICAO (International Civil Aviation Organisation) code.
Difference between IATA and ICAO: As a general rule, IATA has to do with the commercial aspect of Aviation such as timetables, reservations etc. ICAO, on the other hand, has to do with the regulatory, standards, and operational aspects of aviaiton. As a result IATA codes are used for passenger reservation systems, ticketing etc. and ICAO codes are used for operations, flight planing, navigation, etc. IATA is effectively a powerful lobbying body for international air carriers, while ICAO is an inter-governmental organisation which deals with regulatory aspects of national civil aviation. ICAO makes recommendations and sets standards but it has no enforcement powers. ICAO standards are generally followed by national civil aviation authorities.
There are more than 11,000 IATA Airport codes in the database.
