Slot trading. It’s always been a bit of a sticky subject when it comes to who owns what and whether or not it’s completely legal.
But it seems the answer is at hand…in the form of an online shop.
Airport Co-ordination Limited has set up the Amazon or ebay of the slot trading world with slottrade.aero – which it claims is the world’s first airport slot trading web portal.
“SlotTrade is aimed at making the previous ‘grey market’ in airport slots more open, efficient and transparent. The slottrade.aero website allows airlines to advertise available and desired slots in a secure and confidential way, and provides a registry of completed slot trades,” says ACL.
Will this kick off questions of legality? Or is it exactly what the industry needs and has been waiting for? Let me know what you think.
