General

The coordination of airport slots serves as means for managing air traffic capacity through the implementation of the set of regulations and directives as these appear in WSG - Worldwide Slot Guidelines. The main goal of flight schedule planning is to ensure effective use of airport infrastructures, with the intention of acceding to the requests submitted by the many users and to prevent the waste of limited resources.

The allocation of slots is planned subject to the requests submitted by airlines, and determined by the airport’s capacity. All this is done to enable effective and optimal use of the resources, which are at the airport management’s disposal.

IATA is the international association of airlines, which inter alia, classifies airports by air traffic volume and airport infrastructure. Airports are classified into three categories: 1, 2 and 3, with Level 1 defining airports with the lowest air traffic volume, while Level 3 is used for airports with the highest air traffic volume levels.
