The scheduling of engine shop visits quickly becomes a complex problem to solve as the number of aircraft and engines increases. In recent times, different approaches have been used to tackle this problem and optimize schedules, reducing costs and increasing revenue. This paper formulates the ESV scheduling problem as a Markov Decision Process...

This study presents a new approach for integrated tail assignment and maintenance task scheduling decision support. Wasted maintenance resources, restricted fleet availability for schedule flexibility, inconsistent planning, and no emphasis on schedule resilience are all inefficiencies that now arise from airlines' separate and manual tail...

In recent years, the aviation industry has faced escalating environmental scrutiny, prompted by the global shift towards heightened environmental awareness. This study explores a collaboration framework set up by airlines which envision to partially or totally shoulder the environmental impact costs generated by their airborne emissions. The...

Efficient maintenance scheduling is a critical objective for aircraft carriers and Maintenance Repair and Overhaul Organizations (MROs) to minimize aircraft downtime. While predictive maintenance models have improved, accurately identifying materials, especially spare parts, for specific maintenance events remains challenging. This paper...

Increasing runway capacity is a key objective for many airports worldwide, including Schiphol Airport. One of the restricting factors that has become more prevalent throughout the years lies in the task load of the Air Traffic Ground Controllers. To overcome this limiting factor, it becomes essential to mitigate this high task load. This study...

In the dynamic and complex world of air transportation, airports can serve as vital hubs that connect numerous of destinations and facilitate the smooth flow of passengers and aircraft. However, the efficient operation of hub airports can be significantly disrupted by various factors, one of which is the reduction in runway capacity. Runway...

As the volume of telemetry data generated by satellites and other complex systems continues to grow, there is a pressing need for more efficient and accurate anomaly detection methods. Current techniques often rely on human analysis and preset criteria, presenting several challenges including the necessity for expert interpretation and continual...

Air cargo is vital for efficient global supply chains, enabling the rapid transport of valuable goods. Combination airlines, a significant player in the industry, use both dedicated full freighters and the belly space of scheduled passenger flights to transport cargo. This research develops a decision tool that combination airlines can use to...

Optimizing the routes of firefighting aircraft can reduce the time it takes to contain wildfires and make sure they remain within control. In this paper, a novel formulation of the Vehicle Routing Problem (VRP) is developed to improve aerial firefighting operations by optimizing aircraft routes. The formulation is a capacitated split delivery...

Varenna, Sara (author)
The complexities associated with airline operations require operations planning to be divided into multiple problems solved sequentially by the respective departments: (1) network planning, and (2) maintenance planning. <br/>Furthermore, airline operations take place in an intrinsically uncertain environment, which requires the development of...

Reducing fuel consumption is an increasingly important topic within aviation. One approach to accomplish this goal is reducing excess fuel weight being loaded on aircraft. Flight dispatchers and pilots load extra fuel to account for uncertainties present in trip fuel consumption, which is currently computed by the flight planning system (FPS)....

Hoogendoorn, Rik (author)
During arrival waves at hub airports the surrounding airspaces can be congested, resulting in flight delays. To solve this congestion problem one of the current solutions is to sequence flights whilst they are still en-route by using an Extended Arrival Manager (E-AMAN). This paper aims at improving this E-AMAN concept by tackling two of its...

Gambetta, Luis (author)
In the airline industry revenue and inventory is managed tightly, with the intent to sell each seat at the right price to the right customer at the right time. This does not always go to plan and seats remain unsold, or demand can be greater than what is available. The question then becomes how can capacity and revenue be managed more...

Airlines frequently deal with unexpected disruptions, which have to be resolved in order to resume their operations again. Decision-support tools help airlines with disruption management. However, long computational times are associated with integrated recovery models that compute globally optimal solutions, which makes these tools unfit for...

To reduce the environmental impact of the aviation sector in Europe, climate goals have been set as stated in the Paris Agreement and the European Green Deal. This reduction can be achieved by fleet replacement with electrified aircraft. Challenging is that electrified aircraft are yet in a conceptual phase and most likely suitable for smaller...

This research aims to investigate and experiment on a state-of-the-art problem to treat the non-monotonic behavior of fault progression trends in predictive maintenance. Well-established algorithms and literature are researched for fault progression prognostics, however, not considerable attention has been given to<br/>monotonic constraints at a...

In this research, a sustainability and cost assessment of battery health management strategies applied to Lithium batteries of an electric Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (eUAV) is performed. A mission-based strategy is proposed with the aim to elongate battery lifetime. With this strategy, the battery is charged to the estimated State of Charge (SOC)...

Network scheduling and fleet assignment are essential tasks for airline operation. In order to generate an optimal flight plan, the flight route and the flight schedule of each aircraft in the fleet requires deliberated consideration and planning. Compared with commercial airlines, which are in pursuit of maximal benefit during the operations,...

With the increasing availability of sensor data to monitor the health of systems and components, maintenance is encountering a shift from the traditional preventive and corrective methodologies to a predictive approach. Given that maintenance, repair and overhaul are a significant operational cost to organizations, it is imperative that the...

The planning of air cargo across an airlines' network is proven to be a complex problem consisting of multiple subproblems. Currently, all these subproblems are solved sequentially and by hand, resulting in partial solutions instead of an integrated solution. Two of these subproblems are the palletization of items onto ULDs and the scheduling of...
