The Slot Allocation Process
The slot allocation process governs the allocation and exchange of slots at congested airports worldwide, on a fair, transparent and non-discriminatory basis.
In consultation with the airline and airport coordinator communities, IATA manages and publishes the industry standards in the Worldwide Slot Guidelines - WSG intended to provide guidance on managing the allocation of slots at airports.
The Slot Conference
The semi-annual Slot Conference - SC allows airlines and coordinators to meet face-to-face to review their slot portfolio and finalize their future schedules.
