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 training course will help you learn how to allocate and coordinate airport slots by applying IATA's Worldwide Slot Guidelines (WSG), 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.
