Regularly attracting over 1100 delegates, from over 230 airlines, 75 schedules-facilitated or fully coordinated airports and 75 exhibitors & sponsors, this semi-annual business meeting is IATA’s largest event. The goal of the 140th Slot Conference is for airlines and airports to obtain the slots that will give them the best possible schedule to offer their customers.
The Slot Conference (SC) is a working conference. As part of the slot process, the purpose of this voluntary assembly of both IATA and non-IATA airlines worldwide is to provide a forum for the allocation of slots at fully coordinated airports (Level 3), and for the reaching of consensus on the schedule adjustments necessary to conform to airport capacity limitations (Level 2).
The semi-annual (June and November) Slot Conference is one of IATA’s largest events with this one held in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. The Conference operating procedures are published in the Worldwide Slot Guidelines (WSG).
