Therefore for all flights and whatever their changes (except emergency landing, flights connected with human life saving, search and rescue flights) the slots for arrival and departure shall be requested before an execution of flight from the airport co−ordinator at the address:

1.2.1.8.2 Breach of coordination mechanisms

As a breach of coordination mechanisms is considered:

a) execution of flight without previous allocation of slot by the airport coordinator;

b) intentional breach of coordinated time, it means the coordination has been done for the flight in accordance with the above mentioned articles but the real block time after arrival or before departure differs more than 20 minutes from the time allocated by the coordinator without serious reasons (meteorological condition, en-route slot etc.) and without adequate justification by sending a delay code and appropriate time of delay.

In case of flight with the assigned slot outside time of night noise restriction, in which the block time is after landing or before take-off of the aircraft during the period of night noise from 2100 (2000) to 0500 (0400), a tolerance of 10 minutes is applied.

c) breach of coordinated type of aircraft or failure to comply with the noise criteria of category 1 or 2 during the period of night noise restriction 2100 (2000) to 0500 (0400) according to AIP, LKPR AD 2.21;

d) a flight for which a slot was allocated by the airport coordinator is not realized and cancellation of the slot by the airport coordinator has not been requested in advance.

Decision if coordination mechanisms have been breached is in full competence of the airport coordinator.
