The steady growth of air traffic volumes and the subsequent increase of congestion at major airports require airports to increase their operational efficiency. Inefficient or the absence of gate reassignment models increase the possibility and occurrence of gate blockage and at the same time reduce the comfort of passengers as they often receive...

Margins for cargo airlines that were already thin have been put further under pressure, which stresses the importance of operating a profitable schedule. Research on modelling passenger operations has proven that integrating different steps in the schedule planning process can yield a significant increase in profit. For cargo operations no...

Using a data-driven approach, a heterogeneous populated agent-based model of an airport security checkpoint is calibrated and validated. It is found that average performance using the model can be replicated to a sufficient degree. The heterogenous population could become useful when different passenger fractions - with different performance per...

Humanitarian organisations have a goal to help people in need by providing help in all kinds of ways.<br/>Supplies and humanitarian workers have to be transported to every place where support is required. Even remote locations, where transport over conventional roads might be impossible, have to be accessible. Aviation is the solution for these...

Demand for air traffic is growing worldwide. In order to accommodate this growth, existing infrastructure such as gates should be used more efficiently. One technique to increase gate utilization is by introducing gate pit-stops. Introducing gate pit-stops leads to additional towing movements which can potentially interfere with other traffic on...

The Flight-to-Gate Assignment Problem (FGAP) covers the optimal assignment of flights, or rather the aircraft serving these flights, to the available aircraft stands. Existing FGAP models in literature do not consider airside and landside processes simultaneously. We propose a FGAP model with three specifications, where only airside constraints...

The purpose of this research is to investigate the effects of individually established buffer times, based on historical delay data, on the robustness of an operational stand and gate allocation schedule. Using flight schedules and the structural lay-out of Amsterdam Airport Schiphol, a stand and gate allocation model is created using BEONTRA...

Aircraft base maintenance consists of hundreds of tasks including preventive, corrective and modification tasks which have to be scheduled to a few check moments per year. The allocation of tasks to checks represents a complex scheduling problem due to the constraints involved. A mixed integer linear programming model was developed to optimize...

The master thesis is about testing the effectiveness of the Airport demand management strategies. Based on the problem of increasing pressure on airport capacity, due to the increase of the demand on flying. The goal is to find a system which supports planning of air traffic control by generating knowledge about the throughput of arrivals. A...

The most common operational measure in aviation to reduce the effect of environmental noise pollution is noise abatement procedures. Noise abatement procedures are recommended flying techniques based on noise optimal trajectories, which aim at reducing the noise impact on local communities as much as possible. Atmospheric...

Startups are a major source of innovation and are capable of doing things where larger firms are not capable of. Many corporates are therefore looking at opportunities to collaborate with startups, also called external venturing, and to capture their value. Although working with startups has many benefits and great opportunities for corporates,...

The thought of being secure has been on the minds of people throughout history. Security is the protection against intended incidents. Intended incidents happen due to a result of a deliberate and planned act. Security systems are implemented in order to set up security precautions which have as main goal the protection of all assets present...
