Aviation and Air Transport

Aviation plays an increasingly important role for the efficient transport of passengers and goods in the globalized economy. The rapid increase in demand for air transport services, coupled with the scarcity of airport and air-space capacity, require the development and implementation of models and solution methods that can optimally determine the capacity of the various components of the air transport system, make optimum use of available resources, and estimate the impacts associated with the operation of the air transport system. 

CENTRAL researchers have worked extensively on Aviation and Air Transport-related projects. Currently, our research activities are focussing on the development of decision support capabilities associated with the Optimization of Airport Operations and Planning, Air Traffic Flow Optimisation, Aircraft Maintenance and Airline Scheduling.
