’Course, There’s Always The “Easiest Is Best” Method

Hey, not everyone has time to write Albuquerque out, and many people and companies use abbreviations.

Our most popular abbreviation is ABQ. Short, sweet, simple. ABQ is also the name of our airport, so now when you buy airline tickets simply use this instead of typing the whole city out. Easy peasy! It is also the “correct” abbreviation for the city and is recognized by most people living here or doing business here.

Another abbreviation that is quite popular is ALB. This is actually the first one I learned and I used it for many years. However, it isn’t recognized as “correct” by the post office so to stay on their good side I learned the more accurate ABQ. It was actually my aunt's postman in San Diego that told me I was addressing letters wrong. He said my letters would still delivered but they would prefer if I didn't use ALB.

Interestingly, it's still a common abbreviation for Albuquerque. It is used in a lot of situations outside of the USPS and is perfectly acceptable.
