Is ‘force majeure’ as applied by ACNL the same as ‘justification’ applied by the ILT?

No, ‘justification’ applied by the ILT is a separate and independent policy solely used for enforcement on misuse of slots during the night regime at Amsterdam Airport Schiphol. The assessment of justification by ILT is applied to operations at times significantly different from the allocated slots or the use of slots in a significantly different way from that indicated at the time of allocation and is based on the (Dutch) General Administrative Law Act, see points 18-21 of the policy. The policy words justification as ‘force majeure’ in brackets as this definition is recognizable by most airlines from previous policies.
