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...

Safety occurrences in the aviation industry are nowadays commonly regarded as the outcome of a complex system. Due to this systemic view on safety airlines pursue to understand this complex, underlying system and aim to proactively act upon the occurrence of these events. The most prevalent implementation of flight safety event detection is...

The aviation Maintenance, Repair and Overhaul (MRO) industry faces an enormous growth due to the increasing air traffic. To accommodate this growth and increase efficiencies of processes it is required to increase the transparency of demand in the Supply Chain (SC). Research into predicting demand in the MRO industry have mainly been focused on...

The use of renewable jet fuels (RJFs) is an option for meeting the greenhouse gases (GHG) reduction targets of the aviation sector. Therefore, most of the studies have focused on climate change indicators, but other environmental impacts have been disregarded. In this paper, an attributional life cycle assessment is performed for ten RJF...

The life cycle human health (HH) impacts related to aviation biofuels have been understood in a limited way. Life cycle impact assessment (LCIA) methods for assessing HH are often associated with a high level of uncertainty and a low level of consensus. As a result, it remains challenging to perform a robust assessment of HH impacts with a...

One of the main aims of introducing automation in transport is to improve safety by reducing or eliminating human errors; it is often argued however that this may induce new types of errors. There is different level of maturity with automation in different transport modes (road, aviation, maritime and rail), however no systematic research has...

Emissions from civil aviation degrade air quality, and have been estimated to lead to ~16 000 premature deaths annually. Previous studies have indicated that aviation emissions in different regions have varying corresponding air quality and human health impacts. Given the global nature of aviation activity and its forecasted regionally...

The contribution of aviation to anthropogenic climate change results from CO2 and non-CO2 emissions. The latter emissions comprise of nitrogen oxides, water vapour, and aerosols as well as contrail and contrailcirrus effects. A series of updates can be noted in recent studies related to the effects of NOx-emissions; the inclusion of two physical...

For airlines, crew costs make up the second largest expense, behind fuel costs. Because these costs are very high, there is a large potential gain in improving the crew efficiency within the bounds set by the law and collective labor agreements. This thesis investigates the dated crew pairing problem, and how the crew pairing problem can be...

Aviation emissions have been found to cause5%of global anthropogenic radiative forcing and ∼16 000 premature deaths annually due to impaired air quality. When aiming to reduce these impacts, decision makers often face trade-offs between different emission species or impacts in different times and locations. To inform rational decision-making,...

Deregulation within the aviation market led to constant decreasing revenue of airfares while airlines across the market spectrum sharpen their focus on ancillaries. The objective of this thesis project is to utilize revealed preference data in a case-study of KLM Royal Dutch Airways to better understand the customer relation towards ancillaries....

Aviation is a large contributor to anthropogenic climate change through its emissions, particularly through nitrogen oxides (NOx), which reacts to Ozone in the atmosphere. Due to the emission of NOx, the ozone budget of the atmosphere is disturbed which results in an increase in the Earth’s surface temperature. To mitigate this effect, the...

Landman, H.M. (author)
After several recent flight safety events, such as the accident of Air France flight 447 in 2009, investigators determined that surprise and startle can severely disrupt pilot responses. They concluded that pilots need to be better prepared for unexpected and potentially startling situations. In response, aviation safety authorities have...
