IATA route codes

Satellite ACARS uses IATA route numbers such as AF64. This causes issues with AC tracking as the norm is ICAO which would relate to AFR64. Is there anyway of VRS decoding the AF64 and converting it on the fly to AFR64?

Thanks

Not quite sure what you mean by route number - are you saying that it's using airline IATA codes in the callsign? If so then that should not be an issue, if the callsign is AF64 then VRS will search for routes under AF64 first and then AFR64.

You can see the callsigns that VRS will use in a route lookup, and the results of the lookup (using the master database, which may be ahead of your local database), on this page:
