I just found out that there is an airport in Disneyland Paris with the IATA code DLP. Since I've never heard of it, I wanted to see it on Google Maps, but haven't found it.

Is there actually an airport, and where?

Why does Disneyland has its own, with CDG not far away?

  • $\begingroup$ Where did you find it? Is it really official? It does not seem to be listed in official-looking lists. $\endgroup$ – Jan Hudec Sep 4 '14 at 11:28
  • $\begingroup$ @JanHudec Actually I've found it in our database, as far as I know imported from some IATA file (obviously containing also non-airport entries, like I've found XED too). One reference in the web I've found: flightstats.com/go/Airport/airportDetails.do?airportCode=DLP $\endgroup$ – stuXnet Sep 4 '14 at 11:42
  • $\begingroup$ I confirm, the nearest airport is CDG. You can then take a bus (called optile) and be there in about one hour, making an extra airport useless. But there is no IATA code DLP. $\endgroup$ – Manu H Sep 4 '14 at 11:48

    $\begingroup$ Is it possibly a heliport? $\endgroup$ – GdD Sep 5 '14 at 8:30

    $\begingroup$ I recall being told that disneyland has an IATA code so that your bags can be checked all the way to your resort hotel and you don't have to pick them up at the airport when you land. $\endgroup$ – Thomas Aug 25 '17 at 23:28

IATA codes don't necessarily correspond to airports. Some non-airports have IATA codes to allow airlines to sell through tickets that might, for example, consist of travelling from A to B by plane and then onward from B to C by train. DLP isn't on Wikipedia's list of railway stations with IATA codes but I imagine something very similar is going on here.

  • $\begingroup$ Thanks for the information, I wasn't aware of it! I've found XED, which seems to be the railway station in Disneyland Paris. $\endgroup$ – stuXnet Sep 4 '14 at 11:25

There is a direct Shuttle Bus Airport Transfer to Disneyland from

I wanted to see it on Google Maps, but haven't found it.
