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. The assessment of justification by ILT is based on the (Dutch) General Administrative Law Act, see points 18-21 of the policy. The policy words justification as ‘force majeure’ are in brackets as this definition is recognizable by most airlines from previous policies.
