On 12 May 2015, the European Commission adopted a decision under Article 9 of Regulation 1/2003 in relation to the transatlantic joint venture agreement between Air France/KLM, Alitalia and Delta.

Online Portal




SACN recently started using another coordination system. As a consequence the Online Coordination System can no longer be used. Instead a Portal was being built.


The Portal will have the following functionalities: retrieve flight, add flight, modify flight, waitlist, slot availability etc.


Full access* will be granted to:


·          any airline requesting one, provided it has a valid operating license and AOC. The applying airline might be requested to send a copy of the operating license and AOC;

·          slot coordinators and facilitators requesting one for the airport(s) of their country.


Read access shall be granted to

·         any Civil Aviation Authority and other national and local authorities requesting one for the airport(s) of their country;

·         any ANSP requesting one for the airport(s) of their country;

·         any Airport Management Body requesting one for its airport(s);

·         slot coordinators and facilitators for other airports than the one(s) of their country. 


In principle no access shall be granted to other entities such as brokers, fuel companies, catering firms, consultancy companies, journalists, community organisations, independent agencies, etc.


The application form to apply for access can be downloaded here.

*(GA) operators will get full access too. GA however is not yet included in the Portal. This will be implemented in phase 2 (2014).
