EUACA Recommandations

One of the primary objectives of the EUACA is to support the implementation and application of the EU Regulation 95/93 (as amended) in a comprehensive, consistent and efficient manner.

The Regulation states in Article 8.5 that the coordinator or schedules facilitator shall take into account additional rules and guidelines established by the air transport industry world-wide or Community-wide.

Community-wide guidelines have been developed by the members of the EUACA  in the form of EU Slot Guidelines which have evolved out of the application of the Regulation by the coordinators and schedules facilitators in the EU.

These guidelines are designed to supplement and clarify both the Regulation and the IATA Worldwide Slot Guidelines.

Once approved by the members of the EUACA copies of the EU Slot guidelines  are sent to the European Commission.

These guidelines are used as a source of reference for all industry stakeholders when dealing with complex coordination issues.

Details of the current EU Slot Guidelines can be found in the Library page of EUACA Website:
