ICAO code confusion

Post by ennoborg » 05 Apr 2009, 21:17

When I tried to create a flight from Jakarta to Denpasar in FS 9, I found that the ICAO code listed in the timetable can not be found in the sim itself, due to the latter being outdated.

As far as I can check on the web, the code listed in the timetable is OK, and both codes do refer to the same airport. Are there more airports like this?

Please specify the VA and the flight. Thanks. Jakarta Soekarno-Hatta still exists in real life; Jakarta Kemayoran does not.

It says on wiki that the code for Denpasar International Airport (Ngurah Raiv Airport) was formally WRRR but is now WADD. Try both of those in the sim and you'll probably find the airport you want.

I think he's talking about Denpasar.
And a quick search in the timetable reveals that the only flight from Jakarta to Denspar is on ANA, NH928. I think he'd most likely be talking about that flight.

Sorry about the confusion. I was indeed talking about Bali/Denpasar, and wondered whether it would be useful to put a note about those different ICAO codes in the timetable. FS 9 knows WRRR only, but I have no idea about FS X.

Are there any other airports with ICAO codes that changed since FS 9?
