Hybrid Metaheuristics to Aid Runway Scheduling at London Heathrow Airport

Abstract

A London Heathrow is one of the busiest airports in the world, it has only one runway for use by departing aircraft at any time. Separations are required between each pair of aircraft at take-off—depending on their routes, weights, and speeds—to ensure safety. Efficient scheduling of the aircraft for take-off can reduce the total separations and increase… (More)
