OpenFlights.org points to OurAirports.com, which provides extensive CSV downloads with data being in the public domain. See their data page. Regarding contact info for airport management, the FAA provides this info ...

OurAirports.com is, in my experience, the best data set publicly available. You may find ICAO or IATA missing or outdated here or there, but it's rare (in my experience). They have also categorized the airports as Main or Small, etc, which is particularly helpful, although for the USA, you can simply filter the ICAO code by 'starts with' K and that gets you ...

Privately-held companies often disclose information to the public in accordance with federal, state, and local laws. Some of this information directly involves company ...

You can get a list of UK registered limited companies from Companies House that also contains the SIC Codes for each company. These aren't always that informative, but they provide a starting point?

Gut feel, you will have to dig this data up country by country. This list should be fairly up to date for the UK. http://www.ipa.co.uk/framework/sections/agency/agencies.aspx?display=list&menu=open (something like import.io or scraperwiki will help you turn the page into data - I don't think they have an API) I found this http://eaca.adforum.com/search/...

I'm afraid this is generally the kind of data which is not centrally collected by a government agency, and not freely given by businesses that set up to collect it for their own use or for sale to third-parties. That said, NASDAQ has a list of companies by industry that is 6500+ entries (not limited to the NASDAQ exchange). I'm not really sure how they ...

DUNS is the best business list that I can think of -- but I have no idea if it has industry info in it. Years ago, when you wanted an SSL certificate, registrars wanted your DUNS number to verify you weren't mascarading as another company. Unfortunately, it's not an open list. For something that's more likely to be free, for the U.S., there's a the EIN, ...
