The next IATA milestones (SRD August 15th & HBD August 31st)
Given the uncertain situation of recovery of the aviation market ACNL understands that it can be difficult to decide upon the necessity of the number of slots to be needed for W20.
Nevertheless does ACNL request airlines with slots held and not intending to use for W20 to return to the slotpool as soon as the decision is made not to operate as requested.
ACNL is also requesting airlines with an outstanding demand (NO SLOT waitlist) for additional slots to update according to their updated requirement.
Taking into account the (postponed) IATA milestone for the Series Return Deadline (SRD) of August 15th followed by the Historic Baseline Date (HBD) of August 31st in conformity with IATA WSG 10.15.2 all airlines will be contacted by ACNL in due course of July to confirm their outstanding NO SLOT waitlist request. In addition – given the specific circumstances around Covid-19 – and in the light of IATA WSG 10.16.1 all airlines will be requested to confirm to ACNL that they intend to operate their allocated series of slots.
ACNL will use the information for further forecasting analysis amongst others in taking a decision whether or not to re-activate Local rule 2 during W20.
