The International Air Transport Association (IATA) has awarded ‘NMI’ as the location code to the upcoming Navi Mumbai international airport. “It is one of the important milestones for our airport and a step towards asserting its global identity,” said the spokesperson of Navi Mumbai International Airport Pvt Ltd (NMIAL), a subsidiary of Mumbai International Airport Ltd.

IATA codes are an integral part of the aviation and travel industry, which help identify destinations and traffic documents of a commercial airline. In addition, this three-letter code also facilitates smooth running of hundreds of electronic applications built around these coding systems for passenger and cargo traffic purposes.
