With the growth of the air traffic movements and the population of people living around airports, the number of awakenings due to aircraft noise has increased. ICAO has defined four research fields to reduce noise and one of them is implementation of noise abatement operational procedures. This includes different trajectory optimization methods,...

A study into the operational and economic feasibility of a hydrogen-powered ultra-large cargo aeroplane. This innovative concept aims to revolutionise long-distance freight transportation by offering low air freight rates through economies of scale and unpressurised transport. The aeroplane will have a payload capacity of 1200 tonnes and will...

Costs associated to unscheduled and excessively prudent maintenance can contribute significantly to an airline's expenditure. Due to the complex nature of aviation related operations, reliability practices have been limited. In an attempt to improve component reliability, i.e. reduce maintenance-related costs, a new strategy was proposed which...

Increased market deregulation and the accompanied rise of LCCs over the last decades has put profit for many of the old FSCs under pressure forcing them to merge and form alliances. This sparked the research into finding the most efficient structure for a single airline network in terms of profit and passenger mobility. Along with this, the...

In the past forty years, the volume of air travel has increased tenfold. While demand growth for OECD markets has slowed down in recent years, there is still a potential for markets where air services are currently not provided. It is the goal of the airline network development process to locate these potentially profitable markets. One of the...

The long-haul flights of airlines are impacted by the en-route wind fields. Flights on the same route with different directions may have significantly different flight performances. It may benefit to airlines in terms of fuel cost and on-time performance if the optimal long-haul routes are able to plan. However, the wind direction and strength...

The research deals with improved prediction of runway usage for noise forecast. Since the accuracy of the noise forecast depends on the robustness of runway usage prediction, improved accuracy of runway usage prediction will result in improved accuracy of noise load prediction. The main motivation behind this research is that the current method...

The main goal of this research is to create and analyse a series of alternative runway system maintenance strategies for Amsterdam Airport Schiphol. For the analysis, a trade-off framework is built to determine whether these alternatives are an improvement over the current strategy. This framework thus assists the decision making process...
