Validity of Airport Slots
IFR/VFR airport slots have a margin of +/- 15 minutes.


In order to minimize delays and avoid rerouting to other airports, flights should operate within the given margin. The introduction of the ACDM process at Zurich Airport means that clearance may be refused if the difference is more than 15 minutes.


Collection of landing charges
Landing charges are settled via Cat Air Service AG.


Landing charges can be paid using CHF, EUR, American Express, Diners Club, VISA, Mastercard or EC/Maestro.
