The impact of high-speed rail and low-cost carriers on European air passenger traffic

The impact of high-speed rail and low-cost carriers on European air passenger traffic

The expansion of high-speed passenger rail service is often argued as a potentially effective, lower-carbon substitute for intercity air travel. Previous studies on the impact of high-speed rail on air travel in Europe and Asia have primarily examined the impact...

A method to evaluate the time of waiting for a late passenger

A method to evaluate the time of waiting for a late passenger

The paper presents the problem of searching for the right amount of time needed to wait for a passenger who is late for boarding a plane. This problem, although practically ignored by airline and handling agents’ operational manuals, is common...

About the Need of a New Look at Safety as a Goal and Constraint in Air Traffic Management

About the Need of a New Look at Safety as a Goal and Constraint in Air Traffic Management

In the traditional approach to Air Traffic Management, safety is treated as a main goal. Current safety management systems are constructed according to this approach. However, with the development of technical support systems, further increasing the real level...

Air traffic management performance assessment using flight inefficiency metrics

Air traffic management performance assessment using flight inefficiency metrics

Air traffic management has a fundamentally important role in reducing the environmental impacts of air transportation by reducing the inefficiencies in the paths flown by aircraft. The potential causes of flight inefficiency are discussed in this paper, follow...

Theoretical framework of systems design for the air transportation system including an inherently quantitative philosophy of scenario development

Theoretical framework of systems design for the air transportation system including an inherently quantitative philosophy of scenario development

This paper provides an overview of an inherently quantitative scenario philosophy for systems analysis and innovative concept design in the context of the Air Transportation System (ATS). A general perspective of the ATS is visualized in an “atomic model” ...

Efficiency and effectiveness of airline companies in Taiwan and Mainland China

Efficiency and effectiveness of airline companies in Taiwan and Mainland China

Previous studies have estimated the efficiency of airline companies by the traditional data envelopment analysis (DEA) model. However, the production capacity produced by airline companies differs from that of manufacturing industry companies. Once the passeng...

Twenty five years of measuring airline service quality or why is airline service quality only good when times are bad?

Twenty five years of measuring airline service quality or why is airline service quality only good when times are bad?

Airline service quality to many U.S. passengers may be the ultimate oxymoron based on stories, statistics and the perception that airlines help to foster. In reviewing data from the last 25 years from the Service Disquality Index (SDI) it appears that...
