Dear colleagues, In preparation on the upcoming sports and cultural events scheduled on Côte d’Azur
between Tuesday 08 May 2018 and Monday 28 May 2018 our operation team would like to remind you all specific measures
that have to be taken to face this exceptional traffic.
Please note that Nice airport is coordinated all year long.
All IFR movements inbound for or outbound from these aerodrome, and entering the scope of the
coordination measures, will mandatorily be allocated a time slot by the appointed coordinator (COHOR). This allotment is made directly by COHOR for regular or non-regular scheduled commercial aviation air carriers as per the international applicable procedures and for other operators, through the ground handling agent chosen by them when they have not been agreed to do so directly. In that case, their request will be filed with their ground handling agent.
The allocated time slots, including, for general aviation, an authorization number and a movement time possibly different from the requested time, will be transmitted to the originators through their ground handling agent.
We remind you that for any general aviation flight on a coordinated , it is imperative to comply with the format reminded below to indicate the authorization number allocated by the coordinator in box 18 of the flight plan:
RMK/ASL followed directly by the 14-character authorization number the first 4 characters
of which are the ICAO code of the airport for which the time slot has been delivered :
RMK/ASL(14 CHARACTER AIRPORT SLOT ID)
Example : RMK/ASLLFMNA123456789 (arrival) or RMK/ASLLFMND123456789 (departure) for Nice.
All flights without airport time slots or the flight plan information of which is not consistent with that of the allocated airport time slot may be suspended by EUROCONTROL,
on COHOR’s request, before departure from Nice Côte d’Azur or from point of origin and may be refused on arrival at Nice Côte d’Azur.
Under no circumstances shall these provisions prevail over the restrictions which might be imposed by the ATFM upon flight plan processing. Please note that from Friday 25 May, 2200 UTC to Monday 28 May, 1200 UTC ,VFR aircraft will be prohibited inbound for or outbound from Nice airport. Also Connection flights from Nice to Cannes or Cannes to Nice under IFR are prohibited and training flights are prohibited at Nice.
Finally, the operators of these flights run the risk of heavy administrative sanctions as per the Civil Aviation Code.
Thank you for your comprehension.
