The .aero registry now operates on the world-standard Extensible Provisioning Protocol (EPP). The upgrade allows increased flexibility, standardization, and access to a broader distribution channel of ICANN-accredited registrars. In turn, this has lead to a reduction in the price of domain name registrations.
To date there are more than 40 airlines and 200 airports are already using www.(industrycode).aero. The program was introduced to add links to corporate websites of airlines and airports that have not yet taken control of their pre-registered domain.
