Europe to alter system for airport slots
from The New York Times
The European Commission is expected to propose a new market-based system for allocating takeoff and landing slots at airports to help increase efficiency and reduce travel delays. The draft legislation also calls for stricter rules for the use of existing airport slots, requiring airlines to use at least 85 percent of their allocated positions in a given year - up from 80 percent - or risk forfeiting their unused capacity to other airlines.
