Case Study: Online Trading
Slot Trade is a service offered by Airport Coordination Limited (ACL) to help airlines wishing to buy, sell, lease and swap scarce airport slots. The process of trading airport slots in the past was a more manual experience, in which airports would contact other airports via phone or email in order to swap. ACL wanted to create an online space for airports to trade slots in a more efficient and contemporary manner.

ACL contacted Perfect in 2010, requesting for an online trading space which Perfectpage delivered. The site, slottrade.aero, gives airports the opportunity to manage slots and allow for airports to buy, trade or post up available slots on the site through Perfectpage effective e-commerce system.
