Modelling Airline Network Routing and Scheduling Under Airport Capacity Constraints
Source: University of Cambridge
A flight routing and scheduling model is under development that predicts airline routing and scheduling under airport capacity constraints. It consists of several components describing different aspects of the air transport system, including passenger demand, airline competition, flight delay, and airline cost. These models are integrated into a flight routing and scheduling model in which an objective function is defined to maximize airline system profit within a routing network, subject to constraints. This framework allows the relationships between fares, passenger demand, infrastructure capacity constraints, flight delays, flight frequencies, and routing network to be simulated.
