The whole coordination process has to be done in a neutral, transparent and non-discriminatory way.
IATA SSIM Manual (Standard Schedules Information Manual) / Chapter 6 describes each technical detail of schedule coordination.
IATA WSG (Worldwide Slot Guidelines) provides governments, airport operators, coordinators, schedules facilitators and airlines with details about the process of schedule coordination.
EUACA (European Airport Coordinators Association) and WWACG (World Wide Airport Coordinators Group) have worked out Slot Guidelines on some specific issues.
Many Coordinators use specific software (SCA is using SCORE application software, together with OCS) for the allocation process.
This section of our website shall give you an overview, what schedule coordination (slot coordination) and schedule facilitation is about.
