An Integer Optimization Approach to Large-Scale Air Traffic Flow Management

  title={An Integer Optimization Approach to Large-Scale Air Traffic Flow Management},
  author={Dimitris Bertsimas and Guglielmo Lulli and Amedeo R. Odoni},
  journal={Operations Research},
This paper presents a new integer programming (IP) model for large-scale instances of the air traffic flow management (ATFM) problem. The model covers all the phases of each flight—i.e., takeoff, en route cruising, and landing—and solves for an optimal combination of flow management actions, including ground-holding, rerouting, speed control, and airborne holding on a flight-by-flight basis. A distinguishing feature of the model is that it allows for rerouting decisions. This is achieved… CONTINUE READING
