The European Slot Regulation demands explicitly that FLUKO Flughafenkoordination Deutschland GmbH executes his duties in an independent, impartial,
non-discriminatory and transparent manner.
Due to the considerable competitive and commercial effects of slot allocation, the German legislative has made airport coordination a public office under the supervision of the federal government (Federal Ministry of Transport and Digital Infrastructure).
FLUKO Flughafenkoordination Deutschland GmbH and his staff are a part of the federal administration with headquarters in Frankfurt.
As appointee, FLUKO Flughafenkoordination Deutschland GmbH therefore works within the framework of powers assigned to him as office holder.
In order to offer a 24hour service, the assistance of Aeronautical Information Services (AIS) has been commissioned to assist allocating via online tool at short notice for General Aviation operators and also to offer an on-call service for outside of office opening hours.
