Line 266 Aircraft Type Name

Hi,

 

Refer to IS XML Standard V3.1.1;

 

Line 266 Aircraft Type Name; since IATA code is used, does it has different name/description with the commercial/ commonly used description?

 

Is it acceptable if the description e.g. Airbus A318 (where A318 is ICAO/commercially used code)

Dear Azuan,
 
Yes, it is acceptable. This field is informational and is not checked in the validation. Aircraft Type Code, on the other hand, is checked in the validation for a valid code.
 
Best regards

Dear Ashley,
 
With respect to your answer on the Aircraft Type Code, we found that not all aircraft has Aircraft Type Code ICAO.
 
What if the Charge Category/Charge Code require Aircraft Type Code ICAO as mandatory, eg. Engineering/Handling LM?
 
Can we use IATA Aircraft Type instead?

Regards,
Azuan

Hi Azuan,

To answer this question we would like to ask if you can tell us which aircraft type(s) you have found that have Aircraft Type Code in ICAO.

As the ICAO list of aircrafts is almost exhaustive, whereas the IATA list is much more restricted to commercial aircrafts, we do not see how it is possible that an IATA aircraft type is not in the ICAO list.

At any rate, the ICAO code must be used to populate the Aircraft Type Code. As this is a master data information, if this is not in the list the invoice will fail validation.

Kind regards,

Ashley

Hi Ashley,
 
Kindly refer to attached Aircraft Type Code which I bought from IATA Online Store. If you may see, there are few aircraft with value "0" for ICAO code.
 
Appreciate your advise.

Azuan

Hi Azuan,

 

The Aircraft Descriptions with value ‘0’ only define the family of aircrafts below it. So you can use the codes directly below these for the specific aircraft type – please see an extract from the zip file you attached as example.

 

Airbus Industrie A318 / A319 / A320 / A321                                    32S      0

Airbus Industrie A318                                                                     31832S2JA3180

Airbus Industrie A319                                                                      31932S2JA3190

Airbus Industrie A320                                                                     32032S2JA3200

Airbus Industrie A320 (sharklets)                                          32A32S2JA3201

Airbus Industrie A321                                                                     32132S2JA3210

Airbus Industrie A321 (sharklets)                                          32B32S2JA3211

Airbus Industrie A320 Freighter                                            32F32F2JA3201

Airbus Industrie A330-200                                                             3323302JA3320
