Aero-Domains: Domains with two characters are possible
.aero is the great exceptionKoeln, )
It is a pity, but nobody can offer this. The actual regulations of com-domains and the policies of almost all registries exclude domain names with two letters. The aero-domain is the great exception: SITA has convinced ICANN to permit aero-domains consisting of two letters at certain conditions.
Airlines or aircraft operator can register a specific aero-domain, which will be still more important in the future, when SITA is developping technical features as e.g. RFID.
They can register the 2-Letter-IATA-Code as aero-domain.
Some have already done this. They are a good example. Some airlines use the two letter aero-domain in the communications with the passengers at tickets, leaflets or paint it at airplanes.
SITA has pre-registered all domain names corresponding to airline and airport industry codes; these are now "active" with a holding website pending the decision by the relevant airline or airport to assume control.
The effect of this is to ensure that complete sets of codes work as a coherent structure that is wholly predictable. "In other words, if someone knows the industry code, they know the Internet domain," according to .aero Business Manager Marie Zitkova.
