About

Due to the growth of air traffic some airports are experiencing a discrepancy between available airport capacity and demand. Coordination involves the allocation of constrained or limited airport capacity to airlines and other aircraft operators to ensure a viable airport and air transport operation. Coordination is also a process to maximize the efficient use of airport infrastructure. This course will help you learn how to allocate and coordinate airport slots by applying the Worldwide Airport Slot Guidelines (WASG), the accepted global standard for the policies, principles, and procedures of airport slot management. Learn how to apply the standard communication procedures from IATA's Standard Schedules Information Manual (SSIM) to messages between airlines and slot coordinators.

This course is available at IATA Training Centers and Regional Training Partner locations, and on-demand as in-house training.

Testimonials

Mark Milligan, Senior Business Consultant, Distribution & Slots, Southwest Airlines

I cannot even begin to describe how beneficial the Airport Slots and Coordination course was to me. Working for an airline that is relatively new to international flying, we’ve yet to have a formal venue to learn about worldwide best practices. Our instructor was extremely knowledgeable about all aspects surrounding the slots process and included several real-world examples to demonstrate various parts of the procedures. It was obvious that she was passionate about each member of the class succeeding. Furthermore, I found the unique opportunity for classroom dialogue between schedulers, coordinators, and facilitators to be invaluable. In fact, I was able to use specific aspects of the training in my job the very next day. I would highly recommend this course to any colleague who is interested in furthering their knowledge of the IATA World Slot Guidelines.

I would like to thank IATA and our instructor for the Slot Coordination course which was a great opportunity to increase my knowledge and improve my skills on the same topic. This has helped me to reduce my workload and attain much better results to allocate suitable slots. During the course, the instructor shared her extensive experience which I'm now able to reference when I perform my daily tasks.
