CO2 emission of vehicles and its influence on climate change is a widely discussed topic already for many years. New CO2 emission norms for vehicles have been defined based on the 2021 baseline: 15% reduction resulting in 0.09 kg/km for 2025, and 37.5% reduction resulting in 0.069 kg/km for 2030. Both norms are defined under the Worldwide...

Increasing competition amongst airlines necessitates them to improve the efficiency of their operations. Even though maintenance, repair, and overhaul (MRO) represent a significant portion of an airline’s operational costs, aircraft maintenance scheduling is often still a manual process, producing suboptimal solutions. Airlines typically operate...
