Special slot procedures will be in place at about 20 German airports during the World Cup soccer tournament, which runs from June 9 to July 9. The games are being hosted in Berlin, Hamburg, Gelsenkirchen, Dortmund, Leipzig, Cologne, Stuttgart, Munich, Nuremberg, Frankfurt and Kaiserslautern and are expected to draw a significant number of corporate aircraft to airports in these cities, as well as to nearby alternate airports.
