Pilots are an important asset in the operations of airlines, as with insufficient pilots, an airline cannot operate the planned schedule. The long-term crew planning problem aims to optimally plan the supply and demand for pilots as well as methods and strategies for closing the gap between these. The demand is determined by the number of pilots...

This research concerns the problem of scheduling aircraft maintenance tasks, that must be carried in multiple maintenance checks to keep the aircraft airworthy. During this research the allocation of maintenance tasks to their maintenance opportunities is referred to as the task allocation problem. It is a complex combinatorial problem that is...

Airlines experience schedule disruptions on a daily basis. Poor weather conditions, unscheduled aircraft maintenance and congested air spaces are just a few of the causes that prevent airlines from operating their flight schedules as planned. In the third quarter of 2017 over 20% of all scheduled flights in Europe suffered from delays. Operation...

In operational airline crew scheduling, one of the major tasks is to allocate flight activities to individual crew members. This task is referred to as the crew rostering problem; an optimization problem that aims to assign flights to crew members in a cost-effective way, while also considering preferences of crewmembers. Flights are combined...

The air cargo industry is a challenging environment due to the high competition between the stakeholders involved. This demands, as example, high efficiency from cargo airlines. Efficiency can be ensured by designing loading strategies that fully exploit the available cargo volume. Unknowns in the booking dimensions and flight information make...

In an operational airline environment, disturbances to the planned flight schedule cannot be avoided. In the case of crew absences, airlines can employ reserve crews to cover open positions in crew schedules. The airline reserve crew pairing problem is concerned with the determination of optimal airline reserve crew patterns, which are defined...

The taxi procedure at an airport refers to the surface movement of the aircraft between the parking position and the runway or vice versa. Nowadays, aircraft tend to taxi with the main engines, even if they are not optimized for it. Using an alternative suitable taxiing system that fulfills the requirements of the taxi procedure could be a...

In this thesis, a contribution has been made to the development of a simulation framework which is capable of realistically simulating market dynamics with respect to competition and passenger choice in the European aviation market. In total, 22 routes have been included into the simulation framework, with airports including those in Amsterdam,...

This MSc thesis presents a stochastic modelling approach to the multi-period airline fleet planning problem. Approximate Dynamic Programming (ADP) is used to model the impact of demand uncertainty on fleet decisions. The proposed ADP algorithm applies local value function approximations resulting from Gaussian kernel regressions to estimate...
