This week’s essential entry in the Diversity Dictionary asks… what is a City Pair in the world of travel management?
In commercial aviation, a city pair is the pair of departure (origin) and arrival (destination) codes on a flight itinerary. This could be a non-stop flight segment, a direct flight with one or more stops, or a journey with connecting flights (multiple segments).
For example, the city pair NYC – TYO would consist of flights and/or multi-leg itineraries that originate at any New York airport (New York – JFK, Newark-Liberty or New York – LaGuardia) and terminate at either Tokyo Narita or Tokyo Haneda. Or if you want to get more specific about the airport rather than the city, the city pair for a flight from New York John F Kennedy airport to Tokyo Haneda would be JFK – HND.
