Deployment Scenario Title

Enhanced ATFM slot swapping

Deployment Scenario Description Enhanced ATFM slot swapping: this aims to improve the current NM/AU processes and make it possible to prioritise flights during pre-tactical operations. It facilitates the identification of possible swaps of a regulated flight with another flight, regulated or not, and allows a significant reduction in the rate of rejection of swap requests.
