IATA and ICAO codes of Shimkent
Airports of Kazakhstan have international codes of IATA and ICAO. An IATA airport code is a three-letter code designating many airports around the world (including Kazakhstan), defined by the International Air Transport Association (IATA). The characters prominently displayed on baggage tags attached at airport check-in desks are an example of a way these codes are used.
The ICAO airport code is a four-letter alphanumeric code designating each airport around the world. These codes are defined by the International Civil Aviation Organization. The ICAO codes are used by air traffic control and airline operations such as flight planning. They are not the same as the IATA codes encountered by the general public, which are used for airline timetables, reservations, and baggage handling.
