I would have thought to use the list of IATA code (or ICAO). But it appears that some airlines are sharing the same IATA and ICAO code. For example the airline named "Level" shares the same codes with "Iberia" (its parent company). So how sould I process to get this total number of airline companies ?

Thank you in advance for your answers !

    $\begingroup$ There are thousands of airlines in the world, and even Wikipedia is not listing them on a single page. $\endgroup$ – Farhan Feb 9 '18 at 16:28

  • $\begingroup$ So you have two related airlines which share the same IATA and ICAO codes. Then your question is "how should I process to get this total number of airlines". It seems you have two in that case. Or do you want to know if you should count only one? Please clarify. $\endgroup$ – mins Feb 9 '18 at 16:32
  • $\begingroup$ Thank you for your answer. In my example we should count 2 airlines and not one. $\endgroup$ – ALN Frs Feb 9 '18 at 16:47
  • $\begingroup$ Yes but that's still unclear: It seems the code share detail in your post is not relevant to your actual question, and you just want a worldwide list of airlines. However, as already mentioned by @Farhan, this list would be huge, and include very large (international travel) and very small businesses (one small plane for local traffic) that have nothing in common. $\endgroup$ – mins Feb 9 '18 at 16:59
