Pletzer, Johannes (author)
At speeds roughly between five and ten thousand km/h, hypersonic aircraft offer the promise of an extremely fast means of transport. Growing concerns about climate warming, however, direct attention to sustainability. This thesis focuses on atmospheric composition and radiation changes by considering a range of individual hypersonic aircraft...

The COVID-19 pandemic proved to be an existential public health and economic crisis for the airport system. An interview study was conducted using Amsterdam Airport Schiphol as a use case to prepare for future public health disruptions. The study aimed to uncover key experiences and lessons learned by an airport system during the COVID-19...

Air transportation is a mode of transport developed specifically to provide access to long-distance destinations that may otherwise be infeasible or at least more difficult to reach. Accordingly, there are distinct aspects of air travel that require consideration when assessing accessibility by air transportation, which are not addressed in...

Flight delays are one of the most discussed, yet not fully understood, topics in the aviation industry. In this paper, we shed more light into propagation of flight delays by providing a spatio-temporal analysis of flight departure delays of the US domestic air network for the year 2017. The analysis focuses on four US air carriers (full-service...

Recent advances in battery technology have opened the possibility for short-haul electric flight. This is particularly attractive for commuter airlines that operate in remote regions such as archipelagos or Nordic fjords where the geography impedes other means of transportation. In this paper we address the question of how to optimize the...

The aviation industry is one of the sectors that has been heavily impacted by the pandemic. While the major body of literature has focused on passenger experience and behaviour, this study focuses on airport employees instead—their experiences, perceptions, and preferences following the emergence of COVID-19. More than 1000 participants from...

Gambetta, Luis (author)
In the airline industry revenue and inventory is managed tightly, with the intent to sell each seat at the right price to the right customer at the right time. This does not always go to plan and seats remain unsold, or demand can be greater than what is available. The question then becomes how can capacity and revenue be managed more...

Achyuthan Suma, V. (author)
Due to a projected shift in the majority of the world’s population towards urban areas and the existing traffic congestion in today’s cities, the possibility of using the third dimension for transportation of people and goods is being increasingly explored. The resultant congestion from an estimated demand of unmanned and Urban Air Mobility...

Doutsis, Anestis (author)
Demand for air transportation is expected to continue growing. Within Europe one of the biggest impacts of this traffic growth, is an increase of air travel delay. As it happened during the summer of 2018, where demand from aircraft intending to enter an air sector was not complemented with capacity to safely accommodate it. Incentivised by this...

Itoh, E (author), Mitici, M.A. (author)
Although the application of new, reduced aircraft separation minima can directly increase runway throughput, the impact thereof on the traffic flow of aircraft arriving at the destination airport has not been discussed yet. This paper proposes a data-driven and queue-based modeling approach and presents an analysis of the impact on the delay...

With ever-growing numbers of passengers and complexity of the air transport system, it becomes more and more of a challenge to manage the system in an effective, safe, and resilient manner. This is especially evident when disruptions occur. Understanding and improving resilience of the air transport system and its adaptive capacity to...

Udluft, H. (author)
In this work,we demonstrate that decentralized control can result in stable, efficient, and robust operations in the Air Transportation System. We implement decentralized control for aircraft taxiing operations and use Agent-Based Modeling and Simulation to analyze the resulting system behavior Decentralized controllers at each intersection of...

In many ATM studies experiments are performed to determine the capacity. This paper looks at the effect of airspace design on the capacity. Using an algebraic approach a relation is derived between the design parameters of a layered airspace design and the capacity of the airspace. The validity of the assumptions which are used in this...

Airspace structure can be used as a procedural mechanism for a priori separation and organization of en-route air traffic. Although many studies have explored novel structuring methods to increase en-route airspace capacity, the relationship between the level of structuring of traffic and airspace capacity is not well established. To better...

Purpose: In order to improve the safety, capacity, economy, and sustainability of air transportation, revolutionary changes are required. These changes might range from the introduction of new technology and operational procedures to unprecedented roles of human operators and the way they interact. Implementing such changes can introduce both...

Focusing on passenger transport, accessibility indicates the opportunities transport and land-use systems enable individuals to reach various activities. As a concept used in a number of scientific fields such as transport and urban planning, accessibility plays an important role in policy making. Widely used scientifically and practically...

Air transport provides a suitable way of transport for special types of freight such as emergency freight (spare parts, documents), high-value freight (gold, currency, and artwork) and perishables (pharmaceuticals, fresh food, cut flowers) as these products have very short shelf life and benefit from fast transit times. Air transport is also...

Buijs, J.P. (author)
Together Amsterdam Airport Schiphol airport and KLM form the largest chunk of the Dutch air transport industry. As the market for air transport in the Netherlands itself is too small, KLM developed a worldwide route network with many transferring passengers. Schiphol facilitates connecting passengers with the best possible experience. During...

Purpose Commercial aviation is feasible thanks to the complex socio-technical air transportation system, which involves interactions between human operators, technical systems, and procedures. In view of the expected growth in commercial aviation, significant changes in this socio-technical system are in development both in the USA and Europe....

Airlines invest a lot of money before opening new pax transportation services, for this reason, airlines have to analyze if their profits will overcome the amount of money they have to invest to open new services. The design and analysis of the feasibility of airlines networks can be done by using the models developed in this thesis. It is...
