Why do I need a proper airport coding directory?

Data in the world of travel business flows mostly as codes. For example one of the most popular flights in the world would be transferred between travel systems as 7C-112 CJU-GMP $35. The only common information to passengers is the last piece of text with price and in order to convert the rest of the data to a human-readable format, airline and airport codes database are required. If pass this example through coding directory it would be a Jeju Air flight #112 from Jeju International Airport, Jeju to Gimpo International Airport, Seoul.

At AirHex we aggregate and verify this data from multiple sources and monitor changes to add new airports to the database as soon as they commence operations and become active.
