−1−21. Airport Reservation Operations

and Special Traffic Management Programs

This section describes procedures for obtaining
required airport reservations at airports designated by
the FAA and for airports operating under Special
Traffic Management Programs.

a. Slot Controlled Airports.

1.

The FAA may adopt rules to require advance

operations for unscheduled operations at certain
airports. In addition to the information in the rules
adopted by the FAA, a listing of the airports and
relevant information will be maintained on the FAA
website listed below.

2.

The FAA has established an Airport

Reservation Office (ARO) to receive and process
reservations for unscheduled flights at the slot
controlled airports. The ARO uses the Enhanced
Computer Voice Reservation System (e

−CVRS) to

allocate reservations. Reservations will be available
beginning 72 hours in advance of the operation at the
slot controlled airport. Standby lists are not
maintained. Flights with declared emergencies do not
require reservations. Refer to the website or
touch

−tone phone interface for the current listing of

slot controlled airports, limitations, and reservation
procedures.

NOTE

The web interface/telephone numbers to obtain a
reservation for unscheduled operations at a slot controlled
airport are:
1. http://www.fly.faa.gov/ecvrs.
2. Touch

−tone: 1−800−875−9694 

3. Trouble number: 540

−422−4246.

3.

For more detailed information on operations

and reservation procedures at a Slot Controlled
Airport, please see 14 CFR Part 93, Subpart K – High
Density Traffic Airports.

b. Special Traffic Management Programs

(STMP).

1.

Special procedures may be established when

a location requires special traffic handling to
accommodate above normal traffic demand (for
example, the Indianapolis 500, Super Bowl, etc.) or
reduced airport capacity (for example, airport
runway/taxiway closures for airport construction).
The special procedures may remain in effect until the
problem has been resolved or until local traffic
management procedures can handle the situation and
a need for special handling no longer exists.

2.

There will be two methods available for

obtaining slot reservations through the ATC-
SCC: the web interface and the touch

−tone interface.

If these methods are used, a NOTAM will be issued
relaying the website address and toll free telephone
number. Be sure to check current NOTAMs to
determine: what airports are included in the STMP,
the dates and times reservations are required, the time
limits for reservation requests, the point of contact for
reservations, and any other instructions.

NOTE

The telephone numbers/web address to obtain a STMP slot
are:
1.Touch

−tone interface: 1−800−875−9755.

2. Web interface: www.fly.faa.gov.
3. Trouble number: 540

−422−4246.

c.

Users may contact the ARO at (540) 422

−4246

if they have a problem making a reservation or have
a question concerning the slot controlled airport/
STMP regulations or procedures.

d. Making Reservations.

1. Internet Users.

Detailed information and

User Instruction Guides for using the Web interface
to the reservation systems are available on the
websites for the slot controlled airports (e

−CVRS),

http://www.fly.faa.gov/ecvrs; and STMPs
