Airliner Type Codes


ICAO and IATA Aircraft Codes

One aircraft coding system, maintained by the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO), uses 4-character alphanumeric codes assigned to aircraft types and subtypes.

ICAO codes are used in operations by airlines and air traffic controllers. For example, a Boeing 777-300 is assigned ICAO Code B773.

The International Air Transport Association (IATA) assigns 3-character codes to aircraft as well; these are used by the geneal public, for example in airline timetables.

Boeing Customer Codes

The Boeing Company uses a series of 2-character Airline Customer Codes to identify the original-build customer for all Boeing 7x7 aircraft, up to and including the Boeing 777. The code system is not used on the 787 and the 737Max.

One example would be Emirates Boeing 777-31H. This is a 777-300 series aircraft originally built for Emirates, Boeing Airline Customer Code 1H.
