Default Re-Assignement of pre-registered aero-domains

ICANN accredited Registrar Secura announces today, that Secura as
registrar supports all steps, which SITA has made, in order to
pre-register industrial codes of the aviation community as
aero-domains. Eligible companies (airlines and airports) can now
register the pre-registered domains at
https://www.domainregistry.de/aero.html (English) or
https://www.domainregistry.de/aero-domains.html (German).

SITA, the sponsor of .aero, has announced changes in domain
registration policy. All domain names corresponding to airline and
airport codes are active

Following the recommendation of the Dot Aero Council, SITA activated
all domain names corresponding to airline and airport industry codes.
All two character airline codes, all location codes allocated to
municipal areas and airports and all three letter airline codes of
IATA airlines have been pre-registered. These new domain names are now
"active" and work as web sites until the time, the eligible airline
and airports assume responsibility and control of their domain names.

Pre-registration and activation of domain names was introduced to make
sure that complete sets of codes work and there are no gaps in the
structure that would break the predictability. Once all recognized
codes are present, a traveler or an industry professional can always
receive a valid answer when using a recognized industry code in .aero.
This is very good news for end-users, people as well as systems,
because they can always "guess" what domain name to use based on their
knowledge of the industry codes, and access desired information
quickly. Say, as a passenger, you use the LA airport frequently, you
know the code is LAX, so you just type www.lax.aero and you are on the
web site of the airport. That?s fast!

Pre-registration and activation also serves as a very useful tool for
demonstration and testing of new concepts like minimum presentation
standards for mobile and wireless devices.
