YVR? PDX?

airport codes

Speaking of airports, why is Vancouver’s airport called YVR? And what’s with the “X” in Portland’s PDX? Find out at Airport Codes, which has, as of today, 276 airports from 76 countries, and some great photos, too.

Here’s another site where you can find airport codes: World Airport Codes. This site also has some airport trivia. Did you know, for instance, that Atlanta is the world’s busiest airport?

What’s your favorite airport? Do you like going to Narita or Haneda better? Do you have any interesting airport stories to tell?

Oh, and if you have any friends from abroad coming to visit you in Tokyo, tell them that if they have a foreign passport, they can get a discount on the Narita Express between Tokyo/Yokohama and Narita Airport. Even permanent residents like me can get the discount if we have a foreign passport. See details here.
