Slot Conference

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 twice-yearly (June and November) Slot Conference is one of IATA's largest events. The Conference operating procedures are published in the Worldwide Slot Guidelines (WSG).
