Dronamics assigned IATA and ICAO designator codes


Cargo drone airline, Dronamics has announced it has been officially assigned both IATA and ICAO designator codes. 

The firm reported is the first cargo drone airline to secure these codes. Its International Air Transport Association (IATA) designator code is ‘OY’, along with the accounting prefix ‘651’. Whilst three-letter airline designator ‘DXE’ and telephony call sign ‘Black Swan’ have been assigned by the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO).

The IATA codes enable Dronamics to be officially recognised as an airline entity, including supporting commercial interline agreements with other IATA carriers and enabling the publication of flight schedules through digital flight information provider OAG. The IATA 2-letter Airline Designator code ‘OY’ will be used to establish flight numbers for both scheduled and non-scheduled flights. On top of that, the accounting prefix ‘651′ grants Dronamics the ability to issue air waybills (AWBs).

The ICAO codes are widely used by pilots and air traffic controllers worldwide, said Dronamics. The codes play a role in flight planning, communication with air traffic control, and the distribution of information through NOTAMs.

Svilen Rangelov, co-founder and CEO of Dronamics, said: “Becoming the first cargo drone airline with both IATA and ICAO designator codes is a testament to Dronamics’ pioneering spirit and our vision for faster, cheaper and green air cargo for everyone, everywhere. This recognition by the leading aviation community reinforces our position on the international aviation map.”
