Worldwide Airport Slots and IATA Committees and Work Groups
Slot Policy Working Group (SPWG)
The Slot Policy Working Group is the industry group responsible for guiding IATA’s slot policy and strategic direction, and providing technical guidance on scheduling and slot related matters. This group brings together the airline slot community to discuss and define response to key issues, policies, emerging trends as well as to identify and set out the priorities for action. The group is also the airline industry’s voice for maintaining the Worldwide Slot Guidelines (WSG). The SPWG meets four times a year, including at both Slot Conference events.
Main functions of the SPWG:• Set the airline direction and policy on all issues related to the slot process• Provide guidance on future initiatives and strategy• Liaise closely with other industry associations and regional groups linked to airport slot activities

Non-IATA Airlines may wish to be considered for the role of rapporteur to the SPWG, and IATA welcomes and encourages their participation in the SPWG in such role.
The SPWG term runs for three years, starting in September. The next opportunity for nomination is for the 2022 term.
