Solving Large Aircraft Landing Problems on Multiple Runways by Applying a Constraint Programming Approach

Aircraft Landing Problem is to assign an airport’s runways to the arrival aircraft as well as to schedule the landing time of these aircraft. In this paper, due to the complexity of the problem, which is NP-hard, we develop an iterative-based heuristic by exploiting special characteristics of the problem. Computational results show the developed approach … Read more

Aircraft landing problems with aircraft classes

This paper focuses on the aircraft landing problem that is to assign landing times to aircraft approaching the airport under consideration. Each aircraft’s landing time must be in a time interval encompassing a target landing time. If the actual landing time deviates from the target landing time additional costs occur which depend on the amount … Read more
