IATA provides the global air transport industry with the Worldwide Slot Guidelines (WSG), a single set of guidelines for airport slot management and allocation. The slot planning process is the essential back bone to allow the industry to plan operations to the world’s most congested airports, avoiding what would otherwise be chaos. By having the same set of rules at both the departure and arrival airport, the WSG allow airlines to plan their whole network and schedule, and provide choice and connectivity to the passengers.
IATA is actively involved in a range of activities including:
- Working with governments and regulators to promote and align policy with the WSG.
- Supporting the implementation of one single global standard.
- Running the semi-annual Slot Conference to allow airlines and coordinators to meet face-to-face to review their slot portfolio and finalize their future schedules.
