For now, this template just includes the three-character airport code verbatim and emboldened. In the future it may include some RDF markup to display nearby airport codes. See Wikitravel:RDF Expedition/Airport codes for details.

The template is in the format {{IATA|airportcode}}, enclosed in double-braces, bar-separated. For example, {{IATA|LAX}} for LAX, Los Angeles International Airport will produce IATA: LAX.

US IATA codes are similar to ICAO codes (which have a preceeding K indicating US); for other countries there is usually no relationship between the IATA and ICAO code. Although IATA codes have been scheduled to be replaced by ICAO codes at some point, the vast majority of travellers will be more familiar with IATA codes.
