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...

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....

The demand in global trade of goods is thriving in the recent post-COVID times and is forecast to increase to the highest levels of the past decade. This calls for global transportation companies to implement increasingly efficient and highly optimized transportation processes to fulfill both demand and their need for economic and environmental...

Airport terminals are complex sociotechnical systems, in which humans interact with diverse technical systems. A natural way to represent them is through agent-based modeling. However, this method has two drawbacks: it entails a heavy computational burden and the emergent properties are often difficult to analyze. The purpose of our research is...

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)....

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...

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...

Like any other flying system, Kitepower poses risks to third-parties on the ground. Therefore, in this thesis a safety risk assessment is performed for the system of Kitepower. The research question of this thesis is: Which third-party risks are posed by Kitepower operations and how high are these? Kitepower uses a kite attached to a fixed...

The major international airport, Amsterdam Airport Schiphol, is redesigning its security checkpoints for 2024, for which a novel type of security checkpoint configuration is considered. In this redesign, one seeks to find the optimal checkpoint configuration; however, this remains non-trivial. The checkpoint configuration problem requires a...

Scheduling of airline maintenance is complex with different influencing factors. A feasible maintenance schedule is constrained by the availability of manpower, machinery, material and method i.e. resources. Therefore, the maintenance schedule is optimized upfront. During the day of operation, disruptive non-routine maintenance tasks will arrive...

The concept of Urban Air Mobility (UAM) services was created mainly in response to traffic congestions. In this research we focus on UAM services such as those provided by Uber Elevate. We therefore present a framework to solve the Urban Air Mobility Problem with Time Windows (UAMP-TW) under dynamic demand, using an Adaptive Large Neighborhood...

This paper presents a machine learning approach to the aircraft and crew recovery problem. The presented model utilises a two-stage sequential approach recovering the aircraft and flight schedule first, followed by that of cockpit crew. At each stage, the recovery is assisted via use of decision tree-based machine learning classifiers to select...

Current state-of-the-art airline planning models are required to decrease models either in size or complexity due to computational limitations, limiting the <br/>operational applicability to problems of representative sizes. Models return suboptimal solutions, especially when confronted with factors of uncertainty. Considering the growing...

This study provides new insights in the problem of lumpy aircraft spare parts demands by incorporating new drivers that have an impact on the failure patterns of aircraft components. The study introduces a model and presents corresponding results that obtains component failure characteristics based on data from an aircraft manufacturer. A Monte...

As the profit margins of the airline industry are relatively low, it is of utmost importance to keep costs low in order for airlines to stay competitive. An important cost factor is maintenance costs, as it can take up around 10-20 % of the total direct operational costs. Currently, much development is taking place in developing condition-based...
