Airport Codes

Airport codes (IATA) and information pulled from OpenFlights.org

Install

npm install airport-codes

Usage

The list of airport codes is wrapped in a Backbone Collection, so have access to all normal collection methods like findWhere, at, and sort.

var airports = require('airport-codes');
 
console.log(airports.findWhere({ iata: 'LAX' }).get('name'));
//=> Los Angeles Intl 
 
console.log(airports.at(124).get('city'));;
//=> Sydney 
 
console.log(airports.at(0).get('name'));
//=> Goroka 
airports.comparator = 'city';
airports.sort();
console.log(airports.at(0).get('name'));
//=> 7 Novembre 

If you'd like only the JSON list of airport codes, you can use either the Backbone Collection's toJSON method or import the json list directly:

require('airport-codes').toJSON();
require('airport-codes/airports.json');
