ICT: Wichita Mid-Continent Airport Screenprint

$ 30

Wichita Mid-Continent Airport is a commercial airport in southwest Wichita, Kansas, USA. It is the largest and busiest airport in the state of Kansas.

The airport's ICT designation is actually an abbreviation for Wichita. At the time the Federal Communications Commission prohibited airport codes starting with "K" or "W." Naming conventions of the time then called for the second letter of the city to be used and then use any phonetics to make it easier to identify. Similarly, Kansas City could not get a KCI designation when it renamed its Mid-Continent International Airport to Kansas City International Airport in 1972 (and thus Kansas City still has MCI as its designation). IATA is reluctant to change designations once they appear on navigational maps.
