What are airport
Airport codes are
3-letter airport abbreviations created by the International Civil
Aviation Organization (ICAO) to facilitate efficient communication
throughout the industry. Let's face it, it's a whole lot easier to
describe Boston's Logan Airport as BOS and New York's John
Fitzgerald Kennedy Airport as JFK.
attendants need to know these airport codes?
As a flight
attendant, you'll use these codes every day. You'll need to know
them for reading your own flight schedule, assisting passengers
with their tickets, and for connections announcements. One of the
first tests you'll be given in
new-hire training is the airport
codes test. You'll be required to know every airport code for
every one of your airline's destination cities. And there's not
much room for error; most airlines require you to score at least
90% to pass!
