Welcome to the Airport Reservation Office, stop number two of your tour.
The Airport Reservation Office (ARO) processes all requests for IFR operations at designated Slot Controlled Airports and allots reservations on a first come, first served basis.
The Slot Controlled Airports are:
Ronald Reagan Washington National
The ARO also allocates reservations to and from airports with above-normal traffic demand due to special events such as the Olympics, major Golf Tournaments, NASCAR events, etc.
By implementing a special traffic management program (STMP), the number of arrivals and departures generated by an event are controlled, allowing for a limited number of reservations in specific time intervals.
