Dronamics has become the first cargo drone airline to be officially assigned both IATA and ICAO designator codes.

The drone firm has been assigned the IATA designator code “OY,” along with the accounting prefix “651.”

The ICAO call sign “Black Swan” and the 3-letter airline designator “DXE” have also been assigned to Dronamics.

Dronamics said the codes would enable it to be officially recognised as an airline entity, supporting commercial interline agreements with other IATA carriers, facilitating connections with freight forwarders, and enabling the publication of flight schedules.

The IATA two-letter Airline Designator code “OY” will be used to establish flight numbers.

The Airline Accounting Prefix “651” grants Dronamics the ability to issue air waybills (AWBs).

The ICAO codes are used by pilots and air traffic controllers for flight planning, communication with air traffic control, and the dissemination of vital information through NOTAMs (Notice to Air Missions).

Svilen Rangelov, co-founder and chief executive of Dronamics, said: “Becoming the first cargo drone airline with both IATA and ICAO designator codes is a testament to Dronamics’ pioneering spirit and our vision for faster, cheaper and green air cargo for everyone, everywhere. This recognition by the leading aviation community reinforces our position on the international aviation map.”
