Welcome to Nordic Airport Coordination
WINTER WAIVER ANNOUNCEMENT BY THE NORDIC AIRPORT COORDINATORS
Taking into account the statement issued by Commissioner Adina Valean on the EU Commission’s intention to extend the use-it or lose-it slot waiver for the Winter 2020 season (https://ec.europa.eu/transport/modes/air/news/2020-09-14-common-rules-allocation-slots-community-airports_en), and awaiting the formal decision on this, the Nordic Coordinators have decided to grant alleviation from non-use of slots at coordinated and facilitated airports from 25th October 2020 to 30 December 2020. When a formal decision is made the waiver will be extended in accordance with this.
Our aim is to allow airlines and airports to advance their planning, and for airlines to make available any excess airport capacity for others to use.
As required by the Commission in the statement by Commissioner Adina Valean, the alleviation will apply the industry agreed conditions (see more here) to the Winter waiver.
SUMMER 2020 WAIVER
On April1, 2020, an addendum to the slot regulation came into force.
This addendum concerns a waiver of the 80/20 «use it or lose it» rule in response to the SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19 – Corona) outbreak.
The Nordic coordinators will with respect to the 80/20 rule consider slots allocated for the period from March 1, 2020, until and including October 24, 2020, as having been operated by the air carrier to which they have initially been allocated. This goes without geographical restrictions.
Slot return should not happen later than 2 weeks before the planned operation unless they are for reasons unrelated to the general decline in demand for air transport (for example technical problems with an aircraft).
New slots granted are not automatically counted into the base of historics for the next equal season if this would come in conflict with a cancelled slot granted as waiver.
The Regulation giving the waiver as well as EUACA guidance for S20 related to the waiver can be found by pressing the respective links.
The Nordic Airport Coordinators are responsible for the slot coordination, schedule facilitation, and scheduled data collection at a large number of airports within Denmark, Estonia, Faroe Islands, Finland, Greenland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden.
