Electric taxiing (ET) is a novel concept that focuses on replacing engine-powered aircraft taxiing by taxiing using electrically powered towing vehicles, called ET vehicles. The main purpose of ET is reducing the impact of aviation on climate change while at the same time saving fuel costs. In this paper, we propose two models that can be used...

Involving air traffic controllers and pilots into the bird strike prevention process is considered an essential step to increase aviation and avian safety. Prior to implementing operational measures such as real-time warning systems, it is vital to evaluate their feasibility. This paper studies the efficacy of a bird strike advisory system for...

Bird strike prevention in civil aviation has traditionally focused on the airport perimeter. Since the risk of especially damaging bird strikes outside the airport boundaries is rising, this paper investigates the safety potential of operational bird strike prevention involving pilots and controllers. In such a concept, controllers would be...

This thesis shows that it is possible to produce safety knowledge by mining Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast (ADS-B) data. The methodology combines exceedance detection and anomaly detection techniques to identify anomalous safety events in approach flights. One of these events is unstable approaches, which are identified with a rule...

Transportation domain forms a significant part of the infrastructure sector in The Netherlands. After the second world war in the 1960s and 1970s, substantial development occurred in transportation infrastructure with the construction of new assets like highways, railways, roadways and airports. As a result of this, the forthcoming decades are...

The highly fuel-inefficient aircraft taxi-phase causes the industry to consider alternative ground propulsion systems. External systems like the Taxibot are preferred over onboard systems as they do not require aircraft structural additions and recertifications. However, the operational implementation of external taxi-systems is expected to...

The aim of this project was to design a solution for the apron services of KLM that will relieve the ground crew from their physical burden and makes the handling of containers safer. Both with the goal to reduce the chance of getting injured while handling containers. Next to the reduction of injuries, the goal is to improve the efficiency of...

In this research, the link between air travel and the first/last mile trip with public transportation will be researched, as in practice, ticket platforms (such as Booking.com or Expedia) do not yet provide this integrated air- and public transport service. Eventually, the idea would be to create an integration platform that serves as a mediator...

Probyn, Michael (author)
All major airport operators face a similar challenge, namely ensuring maximum throughput and maintaining high runway utilisation. A key part of this is accurately planning aircraft movements on the ground to avoid queueing and associated delays. A primary indicator of the operator performance in this area is the Taxi-Out Time. The research...

The continuing growth in air travel passengers, in combination with enhanced security regulations, has led to unsustainable situations at airports. In order to handle the future amount of air travel passengers while complying to security regulations and enhancing the passenger experience, the terminal system must be innovated. Seamless flow is a...

This paper presents the development of a multilevel optimization framework for the design and selection of departure routes, and the distribution of aircraft movements among these routes, while taking the sequence and separation requirements for aircraft on runways and along selected routes into account. The main aim of the framework is to...

This report focuses on the optimal utilization of commercial office real estate at Schiphol Amsterdam Airport to further contribute to the Mainport Strategy of the Netherlands. It is important to realize that the non-aeronautical activities play a crucial role for the business of the airport, especially considering factors such as a limit on the...

Airport security checkpoints are the most important bottleneck in airport operations, but few studies aim to empirically understand them better. In this work we address this lack of data-driven quantitative analysis and insights about the security checkpoint process. To this end, we followed a total of 2277 passengers through the security...

Airports play a key role during humanitarian relief operations. It is therefore important to connect the humanitarian and aviation disciplines to find possibilities to improve these airport operations when operating during and after a humanitarian disaster. This research provides a methodology on how to model, verify, calibrate and validate the...

Amsterdam Schiphol Airport is the main international airport in the Netherlands, being the third busiest airport in Europe in terms of passenger volumes (Insideflyer, 2020). All these passengers spent most of their time behind the security check in the terminal, waiting for their aircraft to depart. In this area, passengers are encouraged to...

The almost ceaselessly growing Air Transportation System has led to concerns across airports on how to deal with this growth. Also Amsterdam Airport Schiphol (AAS) experienced large increases in number of passengers and movements over the last decades: the current limit of 500,000 annual movements of the airport is (nearly) reached. Before...

With a significant impact on the development of the global economy and society, air transport is predicted to rapidly grow in the coming years. Unfortunately, while delivering positive global economic and social benefits, air transport has also generated an adverse influence on the environment, especially on the quality of life of communities...

In the current economy, many airports are operating close to their maximum capacity with high utilisation rates. This raises the need for airports to implement demand management measures. This need is further exacerbated when the capacity is further limited due to weather-based capacity shortfalls. Therefore, the development of an Evaluation...
