PBN Airline Identifier


#1

Hi Admin/(s),

Please be advised that the “PBN” airline identifier is being parsed as 'Pilatus Britten-Norman Ltd." This should be “Virgin Australia (NZ)”, the current name for the former Pacific Blue Airlines.


#2

The FAA shows it as “Pacific Blue (NZ)” although it is, as mentioned above, actually “Virgin Australia (NZ)”.

The correct term is "“aircraft company/telephone three letter designator” because the three letter code isn’t used only for airlines but also for non-airline companies.


#3

Will be changed tonight at 5pm Eastern.
