MANILA, May 10 (PNA) — Aviation agencies are set to sign a memorandum of agreement (MOA) that details the procedures on how airlines may apply for and utilize their slots at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA).

This MOA on flight slotting will be signed between the Manila International Airport Authority (MIAA), Civil Aeronautics Board (CAB) and the Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines (CAAP).

It also provides for penalties in cases of slot misuse by the airlines.

The three agencies consider this agreement as their legacy to the next airport and aviation authorities.

Signing will take place on Wednesday (May 11) at the MIAA Administration Building.

According to the International Air Transport Association (IATA), the prime objective of the slot process is to allow airlines to acquire, retain and exchange slots necessary to operate at a given airport.

Through the allocation of slots, limited airport resources are efficiently used to benefit the greatest number of airport users and travelers. (PNA)
