  • Light-weight
  • Device-agnostic country data (Alternative to the .NET Framework RegionInfo data)
  • Preloaded airline information wtih IATA 2-digit code, ICAO 3-digit code, and names.
  • Airline code lookup and normalization
  • Convenient static data collection with methods
  • Fully customizable instance data collection (to add new data and to remove old data)
  • IEnumerable implementation (can be used with LINQ)
  • DI-friendly interface
  • Unit Tested
  • No external library dependencies
  • No external calls
Name Format Description Example Notes
Iata2LetterCode Alphanumeric(2) IATA 2-Letter Code "AA" Commonly used for flight numbers; Can be recycled from a defunct airline
Icao3LetterCode Alphanumeric(3) ICAO 3-Letter Code "AAL" Occasionally used for flight numbers
Prefix Numeric(3) IATA-assigned air waybill prefix "001"
IataName (string) Name registered at IATA "American Airlines Inc." Not recommended for general use
IcaoName (string) Name registered at ICAO "American Airlines" Not recommended for general use
CallSign alphanumeric Identification of an aircraft in air-ground communications "American"
Name (string) General name "American Airlines" The most commonly used name


Read-only data collection


string code = "AA";
bool valid = AirlineCollection.Contains(code);  // True


string lowerCased = "aa";
bool valid = AirlineCollection.Contains(lowerCased);  // True


int numericCode = 1;
bool valid = AirlineCollection.Contains(numericCode);  // True


string iata2DigitCode = "aa";
string code = AirlineCollection.Normalize(iata2DigitCode);  // "AA"


string icao3DigitCode = "aal";
string code = AirlineCollection.Normalize(icao3DigitCode);  // "AAL"


int numericCode = 1;
string code = AirlineCollection.Normalize(numericCode);  // "001"


string invalidCode = "xyz";
string code = AirlineCollection.Normalize(invalidCode);  // null


int numericCode = 99999;
string code = AirlineCollection.Normalize(numericCode);  // null


string code = "AA";
var country = AirlineCollection.GetAirline(code);  // { "Iata2LetterCode":"AA", "Icao3LetterCode":"USA", "Prefix":"001", "IataName":"American Airlines Inc.", "IcaoName":"American Airlines", "Callsign":"American Airlines", "Name":"American Airlines" }


string invalidCode = "XYZ";
var airline = CountryCollection.GetAirline(code);  // null

<br />


Customizable data collection (All instance members can be mocked in unit testing by implementing IAirlineCollection)


string code = "AA";
var airline = new AirlineCollection()[code];  // { "Iata2LetterCode":"AA", "Icao3LetterCode":"USA", "Prefix":"001", "IataName":"American Airlines Inc.", "IcaoName":"American Airlines", "Callsign":"American Airlines", "Name":"American Airlines" }

.Add(iata2LetterCode, icao3LetterCode, prefix)

.Add(iata2LetterCode, icao3LetterCode, prefix, iataName, icaoName, callSign, name)

var airlines = new AirlineCollection();
airlines.Add("XX", "XXX", "999");
airlines.Add("ZZ", "ZZZ", "000", "ZZ Airline", "ZZ Air LLC", "ZZA", "ZZ Air");


var code = "AA";
var airlines = new AirlineCollection();

string code = "AA";
bool valid = new AirlineCollection().Contains(code);  // extension method


string iata2DigitCode = "aa";
string code = new AirlineCollection().Normalize(iata2DigitCode);  // extension method


string code = "AA";
var country = AirlineCollection.GetAirline(code);  // extension method
