There’s certainly some room to have fun with airport IATA codes, the following routes, albeit hypothetical would likely set the jetlag aside and bring a smile to anyone’s face…

SOD – OFF – Try to book a flight from Sorocaba Airport in Brazil to Offutt Airport Force Base, Omaha, Nebraska and you can imagine the response…

FEZ – HAT – Don’t forget your FEZ, if flying from Fès–Saïs Airport in Morocco to Heathlands Airport in Queensland, Australia.

DIK – HED – A genuine possibility for a domestic route from Dickinson Theodore Roosevelt Airport to Herendeen Bay in Alaska.

FAT – BUM – Another internal flight option might just be possible from Fresno Yosemite Airport to Butler Airport in Missouri.

POO – PIE – Choose your In-flight meal carefully if flying from Pocos De Caldas in Brazil to St. Pete-Clearwater International in Florida.

MAD – GIT – An unlikely route, you’d be MAD to fly from Madrid to Geita Airport in Tanzania.

BUD Ferihegy Hungary is pretty simply. The airport is located in the capital city of Hungary, which is Budapest.. BUDapest..

Furthermore, it’s outdated. Ferihegy was renamed to “Liszt Ferenc airport” a couple of months ago.

Willmar Municipal Airport in Minnesota…formerly identified as KILL. Eerily, the airport is in the path between Mason City, IA and Fargo, ND…the path intended for the flight in which Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valens and The Big Bopper died.
