Operations Research in the Airline Industry / Edition 1

The field of operations research has had a tremendous impact on the management of today's air transportation. Driven by enormous demand from management to gain a competitive advantage in the market, airlines are turning to advanced optimization techniques to develop mission-critical decision support systems for management and control of airline operations.
The purpose of Operations Research in the Airlines Industry is to show some recent advances in optimization techniques and decision support systems applications in air transportation. It covers a wide variety of operations research topics in the air transportation industry including:

  • Demand forecasting
  • Network design
  • Revenue management
  • Route planning
  • Airline schedule planning
  • Irregular operations aircraft routing
  • Integrated scheduling
  • Real-time crew management
  • Crew pairing optimization
  • Air traffic flow management
  • Crew rostering
  • Airport traffic simulation and control
  • Coping with the FAA's traffic control program.
