Decentralised air traffic control shifts decision making to a local level, allowing decentralised controllers to focus on solving local conflicts. Since decentralised controllers have accurate local information at their disposal, they can adapt quicker and more efficiently to changing conditions. Consequently, it is suggested that the dynamics...

Continuous Climb Operations aim at improving the efficiency of a flight's climb phase by reducing the number of level-offs. The associated fuel-benefits help airlines and airports to comply with future emission demands, rising fuel prices and modernizing airspace requirements. Previously, most studies in this field only considered the effect of...

Using Schiphol’s Security Scanner is confusing for a lot of passengers. Therefore, security agents currently have to fully take on the task of guiding the passenger through the Scanner. This repetitive task in the high volume environment of Schiphol security leads to physical and mental exhaustion which results in frustration, and is projected...

The core business of an airport is its air-side activities but it could not function without fluent, multi-modal and resilient land-side connectivity with its surroundings. The AirportCity is located in a dense urban area and therefore also the most important land-side transport interchange of the Netherlands. Due to the growth of air travellers...

Amsterdam Aiport Schiphol (AAS) has the ambition of becoming Europe's cargo preferred airport. However, in addition to facing spare capacity for future growth, past research has shown key issues preventing it from reaching this goal. Some of these are truck waiting times, long throughput times and 1st line warehouse efficiency. One of the...

Currently, only one Standard Instrument Departure (SID) track and one flight procedure is used per runway departure fix combination. In contrast to tailored arrivals, the potential benefit of tailored departures has been left relatively undiscovered. The research objective is to quantify the potential benefit of tailored SID-s and profile...

Runway capacity of a complex runways system can be limited by several factors. Currently, the runway usage at Amsterdam Airport Schiphol (AAS) is described by a preference list established by multiple stakeholders. It makes an important trade-off between minimizing noise exposure to the environment and maximizing capacity. The existing model...

In 2011, Schiphol introduced the self-service passport control (SSPC), which now functions as an alternative for the traditional passport control (TPC) at four different locations within the airport. Travellers thus have to make an obligatory choice between the two types of services. At the Schengen/non-Schengen border between Lounge 1 and...
