I am trying to find a list of IATA and ICAO codes that are currently in use and also a list for airfields that are no longer in use. So basically a list of all allocated codes whether they are in use or not! Any ideas?

Seem to recall coming by official data for complete listings of IATA/ICAO airfields was difficult. Active ones are a matter of research.

Either way money is likely to be involved.

You could try http://www.icaodata.com/ Or contact RATI/Flight direct, I know they have they have ICAO/IATA airfield data though I really shouldn't be plugging my (*ugh*) ex-employer :rolleyes:

And speaking about my ex-employer (IATA) it was very difficult to get listings of IATA/ICAO airfield code tie ups even for official purposes. But let's not talk about IATA reassiging the two character airline codes...

you would be hard pressed to find all the ICAO codes for free, however one source you could try is NIMA.

word or warning on those, (unless you are using it for fun.) from past experience working with a charting firm a lot of the Australian ones do not match so well the the chinese indonesian and malaysian ones are also relatively random.

either way NIMA would probably be one of the best places for Icao codes and also Run lats and longs.

I have a copy of the Klingenfuss "Air & meteo code manual" which has quite a comprehensive list (for 1992).

You can also search at http://euro.wx.propilots.net/

select "airport information" from the top drop-down menu.
