ACNL is designated by the Minister of Infrastructure and the Environment (‘the Minister’) at 25 November 1998 as the independent coordinator for slot coordinated airports in the Netherlands in accordance with EEC Regulation 95/93 and Dutch legislation and has been established as a foundation. ACNL has a Supervisory Board whose members are representatives of carriers with one of the
coordinated airports in the Netherlands as their home base (at present: KLM, Transavia, Martinair and TUIfly) and representatives of the three coordinated airports. As European rules stipulate that the coordinator should be independent, the Supervisory Board does not have any influence on the process of slot allocation, they only supervise financial and management matters.
The budget of ACNL is provided by the home carriers (60%) (KLM, Transavia, Martinair and TUIfly) and airports (40%) (Amsterdam Airport Schiphol, Eindhoven Airport and Rotterdam The Hague Airport).
The home carriers are paying in proportion to the annual number of slots used in the previous year at Amsterdam Airport Schiphol, Eindhoven Airport and Rotterdam The Hague Airport. The airports are paying in proportion to the available number of slots as published in the capacity declarations.
