One of the first things I had to do when I started working in the travel industry was to learn my airport codes. You know, those three-letter IATA identifiers, LHR for London Heathrow, SFO for San Francisco – you get the idea. There are some really cool codes like HIP which belongs to Headingly Airport in Australia and BOO for Norway’s Bodo Airport – luckily I only needed to learn the mains codes because there’s hundreds of them ranging from Aberdeen to Zurich.
Travel Themed Homeware
So where’s this going you might be thinking. Well, I’ve actually discovered some really hip and stylish airport code designed products from Airportag. I love the quirky travel themed homeware and gifts and thought you might too – either for yourself or as a gift for the travel lover in your life.
Airportag is an online shop started by ‘Captain Greg’, a designer with a love of flying, and he’s got some really cool ideas. There’s a whole heap of travel-themed products; throw pillows, coffee mugs, t-shirts, tote bags and phone cases all emblazoned with stylish airport code designs or cool travel quotes in fab fonts and colour ways. There are even designs for imaginary airports; Kings Landing or Gotham City airport. Now you need look no further for fab gifts for travel lovers.
After pouring over the Airportag website for hours (don’t go there unless you’ve got at least a day to spare) and changing my mind over and over, I finally chose a pouch bag. I couldn’t decide which airport code to choose so I simply went for a design with all of them. The pouch bag is printed on both sides and made from a durable poly poplin fabric with a good quality zip. It’s really well made and the print quality is excellent. I love it and now I’ve seen the quality of the products for myself I’ll definitely be buying more!
I’ll let you into a little secret now, and not many people know this, but the airport code LTN has a special place in my heart. Yep, Luton Airport is where I met Mr Jones. Little did I know at the time that I’d eventually become Mrs Jones! So I guess the Luton Airport code LTN will be on the next Airportag product I buy 🙂
