History and Organisation

The management and all personnel are directly employed by Slot Coordination Switzerland. Our head office is located at Zurich airport with a branch office at Geneva airport.

Funding Scheme

Slot Coordination Switzerland is financed by the payment of a Slot Service Fee constituted under the Swiss Slot Coordination Decree (Verordnung 748.131.2) as follows:

  • 50% paid by airports of Geneva* and Zurich by number of IFR flights operated
  • 50% paid by each IFR flight operated to/from Geneva* and Zurich

The airline/operator* part of the slot service fee amounts to CHF 2.50 per turnaround operation (1 single slot = CHF 1.25). The billing process is done together with the landing fees at each airport.

*Geneva: excluding GA/BA flights operated
