Summary of the discussion with Geneva International Airport:
“The map of our page http://www.gva.ch/en/desktopdefault.aspx/tabid-35/ is provided by OAG (www.oag.com). We have forwarded to them your request and the problem is that currently Kosovo has not been assigned an official code by the ISO.  Therefore they don’t display it. So we have to wait that Kosovo is recognized and OAG will update their location files accordingly. OAG is following IATA in that as an official code has not been assigned, then they do not plan to change the code.
As all our systems exchange data, Genève Aéroport has to strictly apply the codes fixed for airlines and airports. We have to use the same codes as our peers and our partners, we can’t decide unilaterally about this.
Therefore, we will change this code as soon as it will be done in the transportation industry.
However, please note that Genève Aéroport presents Kosovo as an independent state in all its own publications, Annual Report included. We can’t do more.”
