This is too cool: Airportcod.es, a site dedicated to the backstories of airports’ three-letter abbreviations.
I’ve always loved searching for flights and discovering my final destination’s airport code. Some are self-explanatory: LHR, MIA.
Others have made me think, whaaaaaaaaa??—like MSY for New Orleans, EZE for Buenos Aires. (Click the images below, if you’re curious!)
I’m glad that I now have an easy place to go to demystify them. Airportcod.es currently has 369 airports from 91 countries, and the sites’ designers/developers, Lynn Fisher and Nick Crohn are adding more each day.
