Pilots are an important asset in the operations of airlines, as with insufficient pilots, an airline cannot operate the planned schedule. The long-term crew planning problem aims to optimally plan the supply and demand for pilots as well as methods and strategies for closing the gap between these. The demand is determined by the number of pilots...

This research concerns the problem of scheduling aircraft maintenance tasks, that must be carried in multiple maintenance checks to keep the aircraft airworthy. During this research the allocation of maintenance tasks to their maintenance opportunities is referred to as the task allocation problem. It is a complex combinatorial problem that is...

Airlines experience schedule disruptions on a daily basis. Poor weather conditions, unscheduled aircraft maintenance and congested air spaces are just a few of the causes that prevent airlines from operating their flight schedules as planned. In the third quarter of 2017 over 20% of all scheduled flights in Europe suffered from delays. Operation...

In operational airline crew scheduling, one of the major tasks is to allocate flight activities to individual crew members. This task is referred to as the crew rostering problem; an optimization problem that aims to assign flights to crew members in a cost-effective way, while also considering preferences of crewmembers. Flights are combined...

You are almost at your holiday destination. The ‘fasten your seatbelt’ sign just turned on and the plane started descending. After landing it is time to get out of this confined space, but all the other passengers are thinking the same thing. Everyone stands in the aisle, trying to get their hand luggage out of the overhead bin and exit the...

In an operational airline environment, disturbances to the planned flight schedule cannot be avoided. In the case of crew absences, airlines can employ reserve crews to cover open positions in crew schedules. The airline reserve crew pairing problem is concerned with the determination of optimal airline reserve crew patterns, which are defined...

This report is the result of an IPD (Integrated Product Design) master thesis at the faculty of industrial design engineering at the TU Delft. The company, for which the project was executed, is mainly focused on manufacturing flight-deck seating for the airline industry (pilot seats for airliners). Their biggest and main client is Boeing, for...

In this thesis, a contribution has been made to the development of a simulation framework which is capable of realistically simulating market dynamics with respect to competition and passenger choice in the European aviation market. In total, 22 routes have been included into the simulation framework, with airports including those in Amsterdam,...

Airlines have a strong drive for innovation as there is a high risk of commoditization and new entrants. Mainly low cost carriers are an acute driver for process optimization and operational innovations. Additionally, the airline industry has a risk averse culture that comes with regulation which causes unavoidable innovation constraints....

This MSc thesis presents a stochastic modelling approach to the multi-period airline fleet planning problem. Approximate Dynamic Programming (ADP) is used to model the impact of demand uncertainty on fleet decisions. The proposed ADP algorithm applies local value function approximations resulting from Gaussian kernel regressions to estimate...

Airline Industry has seen constant growth in the passenger aviation sector over the years. The profits though, have not risen much because the competition has stiffened and fluctuating oil prices have been a cause of concern as well. Price wars have been a short-term strategy for the airlines to gain a bigger market share and retain customers....

Abstract: The operations of KLM Cityhopper (KLC) is a complex undertaking. Many safety, statutory and contractual rules and agreements need to be considered for managing its operations. Hence, KLC spends considerable time, effort and money on planning its resources carefully. Unfortunately, it is all too common that unforeseen events during the...

This thesis investigates the concept of fuel-reduction via formation flight of long-haul commercial aircraft on a network-wide scale, particularly addressing the issue of combinatorial complexity in global formation routing and allocation. A multi-stage formation flight planning (MS-FFLIP) tool is proposed as a computationally tractable approach...

Airlines are subject to external events that may disrupt their day-to-day operations. These disruptions lead to additional costs for crew, fuel, aircraft, maintenance and a loss of passenger goodwill. Therefore, each airline has an Airline Operations Control (AOC) department that is responsible for disruption management. The problems faced by...

The research objective of this thesis is to develop an innovative airline fleet planning concept that is capable to consider the long-term stochastic nature of air travel demand while generating meaningful results in reasonable computation times. The proposed methodology aims to identify robust fleets, in terms of profit generating capability...

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...

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...
