Slot Management

Managing slots effectively can be crucial for an airline’s profitability. Failing to meet slot requirements can lead to economic penalties or even losing a slot entirely. Ensuring one makes the best use of slots held can help make an airline’s network deliver greater passenger numbers for a better bottom line.

MP² offers a comprehensive tool for the simple and effective management of your airline’s slots at coordinated airports. The Slot Management module is available on a standalone basis (in which case it can be interfaced with other systems, e.g. third party or in-house tools) or as part of the MP² AeroScheduler Plus package.

Using MP² gives you the whole picture of your slot usage and requirements. MP² will manage the distribution and receipt of all slot messages, improving accuracy and saving time.
