From the moment we arrive at the airport until we pick up our luggage at the other end, our flight number guides us every step of the way.
But have you ever wondered what this assortment of letters and numbers means?
There’s a lot of information hidden in your flight number, from the direction your plane is headed to how important that route is to the airline you’re flying with.
As you should already know, the two letters at the start of the flight number denote the airline.
These two-letter codes are issued by the International Air Transport Association (IATA), the trade association for international airlines. And of course, no two airlines can have the same code.
