The operations of take-off and landing at hub airports are often subject to a wide variety of delays; the effects of these delays impact not only the related stakeholders, such as aircraft operators, air-traffic control unity and ground handlers but as part of the European network, delays are propagated through the network. As a result, Airport Col...

Inaugural speech on the research topic: Introduction to aviation capacity and why we need to research this topic from a technical, social and business model approach.
Conference Paper

KLM has revealed the plan to downsize the full-freight cargo fleet in Schiphol Airport, for that reason the company requires to explore the consequences of moving the cargo transported by the Full freighters into the bellies of the passenger flights. In the current study, the authors analyse the implications of that decision by using public informa...
Technical Report
Full-text available
Air traffic numbers have been steadily increasing and are projected to so in the future. Most traffic growth pertains to a small fraction of the total available airport capacity worldwide; particularly the main airport hubs present these trends. As a consequence, they are becoming increasingly congested, which results in the increase of delays and...
Article
The airport of Lelystad in North Holland will be upgraded to attract commercial traffic from Schiphol. In this paper we present the simulation-based analysis for Lelystad Airport with the objective of identifying the most promising configuration, identifying potential problems and capacity limitations in the system. Three layouts for the apron were...

Het advies van de RLI met de titel ‘Mainports voorbij’ heeft de discussie over het nieuwe mainportbeleid van de overheid sterk gepolariseerd. De Rli meldde bij de presentatie van het advies dat zowel titel als advies met opzet prikkelend zijn opgesteld, om de discussie aan te jagen. Daarin is zij glansrijk geslaagd. De vraag is echter of die discus...
Conference Paper

Recently, the super heavy aircraft A380 started operations between Mexico City and Paris, and it has been announced daily operations in March. In addition, Lufthansa and Emirates are also willing to use the A380 to operate from Frankfurt and Dubai to Mexico, respectively. However, in recent years Mexico City International Airport has been reporting...

Recently the A380 started operations between Mexico City and Paris. Severe problems have been reported and it is a concern whether these problems can be overcome with the current facilities. AirFrance will start in March daily operations and also Lufthansa and Emirates are willing to use the A380 to operate from Frankfurt and Dubai respectively. In...
Conference Paper

Amsterdam Schiphol (AMS) is the main airport in the Netherlands and it was the fifth busiest airport in Europe in 2014 in terms of passenger traffic. Due to environmental reasons, the capacity at AMS is limited to 510,000 air traffic movements per year. In 2014 there were 438,296 movements at the airport representing 86% of the imposed cap, therefo...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Aviation increasingly faces capacity challenges exposing inefficiencies and shortcomings of aviation related processes and systems. The European slot allocation system was designed in an era with little to no capacity constraints, now resulting in regulations not fitting in today’s developments. The main actors taken traditionally into account when...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Defining airport capacity by maximum hourly runway movements does not cover all the limiting elements. Other factors that also play a role in the capacity must be taken into account such as societal restrictions and airline business models on hub and spokes. These restrictions are sometimes subjective but it does not mean that must be neglected und...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
The current article deals with the problem of assessing the practical capacity of an airport network. This problem is approached using simulation techniques taking into account not only the different mandatory variables which are imposed by the current legislation but also other factors that affect the practical capacity of the airport such as weat...

The current article deals with the problem of assessing the practical capacity of an airport network. This problem is approached using simulation techniques taking into account not only the variables that currently limit the capacity but also other ones that affect the capacity such as the stochastic behaviour of the system, the current traffic mix...
Conference Paper

The Aircraft Recovery Problem appears when external events cause disruptions in a flight schedule. Thus in order to minimize the losses caused by the externalities, aircrafts must be reallocated (rescheduled) in the best possible way. The aim of this paper is to develop a suitable methodology that combines optimization techniques with a simulation...

In dit rapport - geschreven in de vorm van een essay - benaderen de auteurs de financiering van natuur en landschap vanuit het perspectief van investeren. Denken in investeringen biedt andere perspectieven dan denken in kosten. Natuur en landschap zijn de basis voor waardecreatie, met een waardepiramide als mogelijke vorm van uitwerking. Groene Pro...
