In a scenario characterized by a continuous growth of air transportation demand, the runways of large airports serve hundreds of aircraft every day. Aircraft sequencing is a challenging problem that aims to increase runway capacity in order to reduce delays as well as the workload of air traffic controllers. In many cases, the air traffic controllers solve the problem by using the simple “First-Come-First-Serve” (FCFS) rule. In this paper we present a rolling horizon approach which partitions a… CONTINUE READING
