What would be an appropriate formal expression to describe the place from which the plane is going to take off?
For e.g. a flight travels from London, Heathrow (LHR) to New Delhi, Delhi Indira Gandhi International Airport (DEL).
Terms I am thinking of are:
- 1) Port of departure (LHR), city of departure (London)
- 2) Port of boarding (LHR), city of boarding (London) On the itinerary, usually short forms are used and the airport and city from which the plane is going to take off are listed under a column named 'DEP'.
But is there a term used in the airline industry for this?
