The aerospace industry annually provides transport for billions of passengers along trillions of kilometers. The industry is continuously aiming to provide these services in a more efficient and sustainable way. One possibility is to consider improving airside airport operations, both current types and those expected in the near future....

With its 500.000 flights per year, Schiphol Airport is one of the busiest airports in Europe. Efficient runway use is vital for a smooth day-to-day operation. This paper investigates the new runway scheduler at Schiphol Airport, also referred to as the Departure Manager (DMAN). The new DMAN is built for a better utilisation of the outbound...

Airports and airlines are examining and committing to the electrification of Ground Support Equipment (GSE). To be able to estimate the required quantity of eGSE, the charging requirements of eGSE, the change of airport electricity requirements, and the scheduling possibilities of eGSE charging for the existing turnaround procedures, a model was...

As aviation recovers to pre-pandemic levels large amounts of Air Traffic Flow Management delay also return, as the traffic at airports and in airspaces reaches their old levels. These delays have a yearly cost of around 500 million euros in the European Civil Aviation Conference area and are detrimental to the experience of passengers. This...

Baggage handling operations in airports have become substantially more challenging due to the surge in air transportation demand witnessed in the last three decades combined with an even higher pressure on the operations following the COVID-19 pandemic. The intricate nature of checked baggage requirements, impacting resource allocation and...

Since the commercialisation of air travel, demand for air transport is increasing. Optimal system capacity utilisation at airports has therefore become crucial. As available resources such as land, buildings and human are scarce and airline tickets need to be financially affordable, airports optimise their system while maximising capacity within...

Soomers, Joost (author)
The increased pressure to reduce aircraft emissions and the growing demand for air travel causes airports to consider alternatives for fuel-inefficient aircraft taxiing. External towing tugs can be deployed to effectively reduce on-ground fuel burn of outbound aircraft. These new operations are likely to aggravate ground delays as a result of...

Reducing the length of departure queues at runway entry points is one of the most important requirements for reducing aircraft traffic congestion and fuel consumption at airports. This study designs an aircraft departure model at a runway using a time-varying fluid queue. The proposed model enables us to determine the aircraft waiting time in...

van Beek, Soraya (author)
Airport operations are highly dependent on safe weather conditions for their daily operations. Especially the visibility conditions are crucial. Low Visibility Procedures (LVP phase M, A, B and C) are defined at Schiphol Airport, resulting in capacity and runway use restrictions. These Low Visibility Pro­cedures are based on a post­processing...

In this thesis, we consider investment optimization for airport infrastructure which is required charge and refuel electric and hydrogen powered aircraft using battery and hydrogen canister swaps respectively. The task at hand is to determine the most cost-effective infrastructure, consisting of spare batteries, and battery chargers for electric...

Sanders, Grégory (author)
The worldwide COVID-19 pandemic has had a tremendous impact on the aviation industry, with a reduction in passenger demand never seen before. To minimise the spread of the virus and to gain trust from the public in the airport operations' safety, airports implemented measures, e.g., physical distancing, entry/exit temperature screening and more....

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...

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 paper presents a demonstration of our PAAMS 2021 paper using data-driven analysis of airport terminal operations and An Agent-based Airport Terminal Operations Model Simulator (AATOM). The goal of this paper is to demonstrate and analyze the impact of the current COVID-19 and future pandemic-related measures on airport terminal...

Benda, Bram (author)
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...

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...

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...

Airport surface movement operations are complex processes with many types of adverse events which require resilient, safe, and efficient responses. One regularly occurring adverse event is that of runway reconfiguration. Agent-based distributed planning and coordination has shown promising results in controlling operations in complex systems,...
