When airline demand exceeds the capacity of an airport, coordination is introduced to manage planned operations. Coordination involves the allocation of limited airport capacity to aircraft operators through ‘slot coordination’ to ensure viable operations. Effective slot coordination will maximize the efficient use of airport infrastructure. This course will help you learn how to apply for or allocate airport slots by applying the Worldwide Airport Slot Guidelines (WASG) and Standard Schedules Information Manual (SSIM). These are the global standard principles and procedures of airport slot management and the technical standard for communicating between airlines and slot coordinators.
