Cabin crew food safety training: A qualitative study

Cabin crew food safety training: A qualitative study

This study aims to explore the status of cabin crew food safety training in different airlines. Using the snowballing technique, 26 cabin crew managers, supervisors and trainers (from 20 international airlines) participated in in-depth, structured interviews. The interview schedule was developed to...

A method for emission allowances allocation in air transportation systems from a system-of-systems perspective

A method for emission allowances allocation in air transportation systems from a system-of-systems perspective

Market-based mechanisms, especially emission trading schemes, are proposed as a means to control system-wide aviation emissions. Although auctioning has gained some recent popularity, free allocation of emission allowances is still favored by many to incenti...

Prediction of aircraft performances based on data collected by air traffic control centers

Prediction of aircraft performances based on data collected by air traffic control centers

Accurate prediction of aircraft position is becoming more and more important for the future of air traffic. We propose an alternative method for predicting aircraft performances using machine learning from historical data about past flights collected in a mult...

A constraint programming model with time uncertainty for cooperative flight departures

A constraint programming model with time uncertainty for cooperative flight departures

The lack of a proper integration of strategic Air Traffic Management decision support tools with tactical Air Traffic Control interventions usually generates a negative impact on the Reference Business Trajectory adherence, and in consequence affects the poten...

Modeling and solving a bi-objective airport slot scheduling problem

Modeling and solving a bi-objective airport slot scheduling problem

The strategic airport slot allocation problem concerns the scheduling of airlines’ requests for landings and take-offs at congested airports for a series of days within a given scheduling season. Relevant scheduling models dealing with the strategic airport ...

Increasing civil aviation capacity in China requires harmonizing the physical and human components of capacity: A review and investigation

Increasing civil aviation capacity in China requires harmonizing the physical and human components of capacity: A review and investigation

China is the world’s second largest aviation market and is projected to become the largest by the mid-2020s. However, there is a mismatch among the three critical components that determine aviation capacity: airports, airlines, and air traffic management...

In search of the “Right Price” for air travel: First steps towards estimating granular price-demand elasticity

In search of the “Right Price” for air travel: First steps towards estimating granular price-demand elasticity

Identifying price-demand elasticity for air travel using empirical data is fraught with issues. The largest of which is the problem of endogeneity. In this paper, we introduce instrumental variables derived from flow traffic passenger numbers to overcome endog...

Optimization of multi-fleet aircraft routing considering passenger transiting under airline disruption

Optimization of multi-fleet aircraft routing considering passenger transiting under airline disruption

In this paper, our primary goal is to solve the multi-fleet aircraft recovery and passenger recovery problem (ARPRP) by considering delay costs, flight cancellations, and the reassignment of passengers to new itineraries in a single model. The foundation for o...

Airport slots and the internalization of congestion by airlines: An empirical model of integrated flight disruption management in Brazil

Airport slots and the internalization of congestion by airlines: An empirical model of integrated flight disruption management in Brazil

This paper examines the relationship between the control of airport slots by major airlines and their incentives to engage in service quality. We investigate a set of airline strategies regarding possible practices of slot hoarding and slot concentration throu...
