Amsterdam Airport Schiphol characterises itself as a major hub in Europe. Its network is not sustainable with only the Dutch catchment area. Instead, it relies on transfer passengers. When new tax regimes and policies are implemented to combat the environmental impacts of the airport, a change in passenger flows could affect Schiphol’s network...

In response to the growing demand for air travel, major airports are approaching critical thresholds in their infrastructure capacity. As the transportation sector continues to expand, it is increasingly important to address environmental concerns that arise from aspects, such as noise annoyance and fuel consumption. This paper aims to enhance...

As the aviation industry has agreed on the goal of achieving net-zero CO2 emissions by 2050, various mitigation strategies are being deployed and developed. This paper focuses on reducing emissions at airports by towing aircraft instead of taxiing with their main engines; dispatch towing. This is done by developing a model to optimise the...

Airports and airlines are examining and committing to the electrification of Ground Support Equipment (GSE). To be able to estimate the required quantity of eGSE, the charging requirements of eGSE, the change of airport electricity requirements, and the scheduling possibilities of eGSE charging for the existing turnaround procedures, a model was...

Fuel consumption during the taxi phase of flight can be reduced by using electric wheel propulsion instead of aircraft engines. Currently, this can be either done by having external trucks towing the aircraft from the gate to the runway, or by incorporating electric motors on the aircraft wheels to power the aircraft without using the engines....

Amsterdam Airport Schiphol aims to have a fully autonomous taxibot fleet that can taxi all incoming and outgoing flights by 2050. To support the transition towards this future state, wherein the demand for taxibots will initially be higher than the supply and operational concepts will continuously evolve, a flexible taxibot allocation model is...

Commercial electric aircraft operations are foreseen in the coming five to ten years. For an airport to be ready for this introduction, energy infrastructure requirements have already been subject to various research topics. Most research in this field only focused on cost minimization of the number of chargers given a fixed flight schedule....

In this paper, the emissions mitigation potential of implementing operational towing at major European airports is evaluated. Using mixed-integer linear programming, a scenario simulating mixed taxiing operations is used to find the relationship between fixed vehicle costs and target emission savings at an airport and European level. Using...

Before the global SARS-CoV-2 outbreak worldwide air traffic saw yearly increases. New airports were being build or existing airports were being expanded or redeveloped. Strategic airport planning provides structure to these large scale projects while development phasing manages the complex system of airport development and phasing. The purpose...

The 2020 coronavirus pandemic lead to a virtual standstill of air passenger traffic in the spring of that same year. While some travel restrictions have since been lifted, passenger air travel is not expected to return to pre-coronavirus levels for several years. Then the question arises of how to park the large amounts of grounded aircraft...

Flight planning is a process of optimisation that is commonly solved by complex software tools. Quantifying the quality of such a system is for the users an unsolved problem. This paper proposes a method that measures the inefficiencies in different domains to gain insights in the performance of flight planning tools. The established assessment...

Due to the growing demand in air transport, measures need to be taken to reduce the impact of noise and emissions on local communities and the environment. The generic nature of current departure procedures leaves room for improvement in the form of aircraft type dependent departure trajectories. In this study a trajectory optimization model is...

Fleet planning is a complex problem which consists of selecting an optimal fleet of vehicles at the right moment in time to serve a specific demand while subject to different operational constraints. While Operations Research (OR) has mainly focused on long-term strategical fleet planning optimisation, certain operators such as humanitarian air...

Stand capacity assessment is an essential factor in airport planning and design due to the large investments associated with airport development. Fulfilling anticipated demand while still considering future growth is key in airport master planning. In this paper, a mixed-integer linear programming optimisation model is proposed, which determines...

For a hub airport, capturing transfer passengers and offering better connections are key elements that largely influence its future growth and profitability. This research aims to develop a strategic stand planning model capable of selecting profitable turnarounds that will expand the network of a hub, integrating those turnarounds into the pre...

The runway usage of complex airports with multiple runways is currently prescribed by a preference list. The preference list mostly focuses on minimizing noise and it provides a more manageable flow for ATC. However, it does not consider the fuel burn or current demand of flights. This study presents a MILP scheduling model which optimizes for...

The buildup phase at KLM Cargo requires cumbersome planning actions because of a slow data handover at the warehouse and an uncertain initial state of the buildup process at the beginning of the shift. This study presents a model to improve scheduling of future buildup shifts according to flight departure times of KLM. The most important...

Due to strong demand for air travel before the COVID-19 pandemic, major airports were constrained in capacity and this issue was expected to worsen in the coming decades. Novel aircraft (concepts) could help to alleviate these capacity constraints. However, the market competitiveness and impact of novel aircraft is often challenging to assess,...

The growth in traffic movements at airports has been an issue for both airlines and airport operators worldwide. This could create congestion, penalties or delays to both aircraft and passengers. The problem escalates when expansion to current airport facilities does not happen. A major challenge for airport operators is to match capacity to the...

All major airport operators face a similar challenge, namely ensuring maximum throughput and maintaining high runway utilisation. A key part of this is accurately planning aircraft movements on the ground to avoid queueing and associated delays. A primary indicator of the operator performance in this area is the Taxi-Out Time. The research...
