What is SLOT?
Airport slots are designated points in time specifically allotted for an airplane to land or take off.
What is SLOT Coordination?
Airports use SLOT Coordination and Management System to prevent any disruption in flight schedules. SLOT Coordination and Management is an advanced system to manage departure and arrival under the control of capacity planning. The allocation of slots is a specific plan that targets a neutral landing and take-off slots distribution.
Benefits of SLOT Coordination
Airports need to manage their capacity efficiently to meet the demands of airlines and passengers without any congestion that can cause possible delays. Delays directly affect airport revenues and disrupt flight schedules. If the demand for slots exceeds the available supply of the airport, it can be labeled as ‘capacity-constrained’. The management of such a process is substantial to ensure efficient access to airports’ infrastructure and resources.
TAV Technologies SLOT Coordination and Management System (SCMS)
TAV Technologies SCMS is designed to meet the capacity management requirements of airport slot coordinators and capacity planners in full compliance with IATA standards. Coordinators can easily plan, manage, monitor the capacity of all airport resources during slot coordination processes to ensure the most efficient and achievable slot allocation.
Benefits of TAV Technologies SLOT Coordination and Management System (SCMS)
TAV Technologies SCMS offers remarkable efficiency in capacity management and the best possible performance in slot coordination. It is built on the vast experience accrued at numerous airports. Therefore, TAV Technologies SCMS considers the real-life operational and planning needs of slot coordinators while addressing the problems.
This system offers a set of applications for airport slot planners and coordinators to make better assessments and decisions that lead to optimal outcomes, substantially improved capacity management, monitoring, and optimization capability.

TAV Technologies SLOT Coordination and Management System (SCMS) Modules
1.SLOT Coordination Module
It presents detailed slot records in tabular format, which guarantees efficiency in managing and monitoring historic, current and future slot allocations.
All the new slot demands are transferred to this module. It presents detailed slot records in tabular format, which guarantees efficiency in managing and monitoring historic, current and future slot allocations. Users can easily generate reports within this module.
2.Capacity Manager Module
It provides a Gantt Chart-based graphical display of airport resources, which allows slot coordinators to have a full view of the available capacity. In addition, the module has an optimization feature that maximizes the utilization of resources.
3.SLOT Planner Module
It provides an easy-to-interpret and comprehensive dashboard with visual notifications and charts that show the capacity of airport resources. These airport resources can be both aircraft movement-related (runway, stand, gate) and passenger movement-related (passport kiosks, security checkpoints, check-in counters). The real-time data flow of the Slot Planner Module helps the users with the real-time capacity evaluation capability.
4.What If Module
It provides different flight schedules and airport infrastructure scenarios as well as alternative physical or operational rules and regulations. Capacity planners can plan the airport infrastructure or resource expansion projects based on the results of growth trend scenarios with the help of the what if module. They can also determine the appropriate periods for long-term infrastructure maintenance projects.
It helps airports to simulate the passenger flow in the airport and plan their passenger-related resources accordingly. Users can easily simulate the entire passenger flow from stepping into the terminal to getting on the plane.
