SITA to release 3-letter airport codes and reserved names

AERO logoAre you eligible for a .aero domain name? If so, at the recent .aero council (DAC) meeting, it was recommended that SITA release 3-letter airport codes (location identifiers) – which have been reserved exclusively for airport use since 2002 – for registration by eligible members of the aviation community on a first-come-first-served basis. As a result, airports have a limited time to register their respective codes as aero-domains.

This is a last chance for airports to secure their 3-letter codes, which have been reserved exclusively for airport use since 2002. Airports have a limited time to register their respective codes, which, if unclaimed, would be released for registration as of December 1st, 2008.

This process will be done in parallel with the release of special industry and other reserved names, which would be released for registration as of November 21st, 2007.

The list of these domains has been reviewed by the DAC. Once released, names will be available for registration on a first-come-first-serve basis through accredited registrars.

More information and a list of the airport codes scheduled for release are available here.
