General Aviation

All flights to and from a coordinated airport can only be executed when an air carrier or any other aircraft operator has been allocated an airport slot. State flights, emergency landings and humanitarian flights are exempted.
General aviation (all aviation except commercial aviation) is therefore subject to slot coordination at AMS, EIN and RTM.
