UFO and VC: European slot rule proposal will worsen an already acute air traffic situation

    Independent Flight Attendant Organization (UFO) and the Cockpit Association (VC) stated (30-Jul-2021) the European Commission‘s new slot rule proposals as presented are a “significant worsening of the acute situation in air traffic”. UFO CEO Daniel Kassa Mbuambi said the European Commission‘s plans “would be a massive additional burden on the already heavily battered air traffic” in Europe. The unions warned the slot rules will “inevitably,” lead to airline operating flights without passengers on board just to maintain the slots. [more – original PR – German]
