ABSTRACT
The article explains the meaning of number of letter codes which are prevalent and common in public places. Airports use three letter mnemonics with variations in some cities in Europe and North America, while airline companies use a three digit ticket prefix accepted by the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) and a two letter accepted by the International Air Transport Association (IATA). Codes use in bonds, broadcasting, checks, credit cards and in other fields are offered.
