However, with progress being sluggish at finest, airport congestion changing into problematic2 and airline consolidation gathering tempo, it’s pressing that airport slot rules in Europe are reformed.

Key issues for reform are rules and practices that end up preventing consumer choice and connectivity. These include the hoarding of airport slots, overbidding, slot leasing, secondary trading, abuse of new entrant status and ‘double dipping’.”
