This study presents a new approach for integrated tail assignment and maintenance task scheduling decision support. Wasted maintenance resources, restricted fleet availability for schedule flexibility, inconsistent planning, and no emphasis on schedule resilience are all inefficiencies that now arise from airlines' separate and manual tail...

The increasing automation in various industries has underscored a notable gap in the airline catering sector, where predominant manual transport of airline catering trolleys within facilities results in substantial costs and physical strain. This paper addresses these challenges by proposing an automated solution for the transport logistics of...

Schedule design in the transportation and logistics sector is a widely studied problem. Transport service providers, such as the train industry and aviation, aim for schedules to be on-time according to the planning (i.e., on-time performance or OTP) in order to increase the service level by ensuring that passengers actually make their...

Punctuality is a key performance indicator for any airline. Hub-and-spoke airlines are particularly committed to on-time arrivals to guarantee passenger connections. Flights that are delayed at departure need to compensate for the lost time whilst airborne. Because fueling takes place well before scheduled departure, predicted departure delays...

In recent years, the aviation industry has faced escalating environmental scrutiny, prompted by the global shift towards heightened environmental awareness. This study explores a collaboration framework set up by airlines which envision to partially or totally shoulder the environmental impact costs generated by their airborne emissions. The...

Fuel-efficient flight operations and improved Air Traffic Management (ATM) operations are identified as one of the main pillars in achieving net-zero CO2 emissions by 2050. While considerable research has focused on airspace management and ATM operations, flight operations as managed by airlines have received little attention. <br/><br/>Accurate...

Hooijschuur, Stijn (author)
This research aim was to design a centralised model that redefines definitions, standardises maintenance by categorisation, and reduces waste by introducing new slot lengths, leading to an equilibrium between flights and maintenance. This equilibrium enhances the airline’s capacity to manage maintenance efficiently and ensures greater uptime....

Bluebird, a Dutch airline company, was founded over 100 years ago. To this day, they aim to provide memorable experiences to their customers. To do so, Bluebird must service their customers well at every brand touchpoint. Even though digital self-service is becoming the norm, knowledgeable contact centre agents are important to ensure a seamless...

Varenna, Sara (author)
The complexities associated with airline operations require operations planning to be divided into multiple problems solved sequentially by the respective departments: (1) network planning, and (2) maintenance planning. <br/>Furthermore, airline operations take place in an intrinsically uncertain environment, which requires the development of...

With the aviation sector growing each year, the need for a reduced climate impact is becoming increasingly important. Electrification of the propulsion system is believed to offer promising avenues in achieving this reduction. Additionally, airlines operating these aircraft have to adapt their operations and network to optimally utilize these...

Current state-of-the-art airline planning models face computational limitations, restricting the operational applicability to problems of representative sizes. This is particularly the case when considering the uncertainty necessarily associated with the long-term plan of an aircraft fleet. Considering the growing interest in the application of...

Lampe, Reinoud (author)
Reducing fuel consumption is an increasingly important topic within aviation. One approach to accomplish this goal is reducing excess fuel weight being loaded on aircraft. Flight dispatchers and pilots load extra fuel to account for uncertainties present in trip fuel consumption, which is currently computed by the flight planning system (FPS)....

Hoogendoorn, Rik (author)
During arrival waves at hub airports the surrounding airspaces can be congested, resulting in flight delays. To solve this congestion problem one of the current solutions is to sequence flights whilst they are still en-route by using an Extended Arrival Manager (E-AMAN). This paper aims at improving this E-AMAN concept by tackling two of its...

Reducing the impact of flying is a concern in the aviation industry, especially on the short haul flights. KL Cityhopper (KLC) noticed they create food waste onboard of their European flights because they have a one-fits-all catering solution. They are aware that all back-up food and beverage options brought into the air cause extra weight and...

The airline industry is a complex industry. It has geographically spread employees, safety threats, partnerships with regional firms and other airlines, changing government regulations, sustainability, and flight shaming (Deloitte, 2016). Next to these complexities, the airline industry is very competitive and commoditized. The commoditization...

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...

Airlines frequently deal with unexpected disruptions, which have to be resolved in order to resume their operations again. Decision-support tools help airlines with disruption management. However, long computational times are associated with integrated recovery models that compute globally optimal solutions, which makes these tools unfit for...
