Taoyuan International Airport
Performance Monitoring Regulations
in October, 2014
slot performance monitoring regulations are enacted according to
IATA recommended practices specified in the Worldwide Slot
Guidelines (WSG), as well as the conclusions from the 22nd meeting
of CAA Supervisory Committee for International Airport Slots
Coordination held on September 17, 2014. Its purpose is to avoid
slot resources being wasted and misused by
Taoyuan International Airport (hereafter as “TPE”) shall provide
the coordinator with arrival and departure slot data on a monthly
basis, from which the coordinator will determine the percentage of
slot usage. Should the non-utilization of a series of slots be more
than 20%, the coordinator will send an incompliance report to the
operator for confirmation.
above mentioned non-utilization refers to cancelled flights, unused
slots and/or misused slots.
above mentioned “unused slots” refers to slots that have not been
returned two months in advance
(e.g. July unused slots should be returned at the latest by end of
April); “misused slots”
refers to flight schedules sent to TPE one day prior operation that
have a difference of more than 30 minutes from the allocated slots.
receipt of the incompliance report, the operator shall
verify and respond within
two weeks, and discrepancies in the report are to be thoroughly
communicated by both parties.
the non-utilization is due to unforeseeable and unavoidable causes
outside the operator’s control, the operator has to provide an
explanation. It is recommended that such flight reschedules are
filed as soon as possible in order for the coordinator to take note.
response from the operator by the above mentioned deadline shall be
regarded as no objection to the incompliance report.
series of slots held by the operator on the Historics Baseline Date
set out by IATA will be the denominator, while the non-utilized
slots will be the numerator, and any series of slots with over 20%
non-utilization will not be eligible for historic precedence. When
distributing Slot Historic List (SHL), the coordinator shall
indicate which series of slots has lost its historic precedence.
The operator is obliged to settle discrepancies to the determination
of historic slots with the coordinator no later than the deadline
specified by IATA.
case of dispute to coordinator decisions relating to clauses 2 to 4
above, the operator can file an appeal against the decision to CAA.
If deemed necessary, CAA may take such appeal to the CAA Supervisory
Committee for International Airport Slots for resolution. The same
right applies to the coordinator.
