Title: Airline disruption management: dynamic aircraft scheduling with ant colony optimization
Issue Date: 2015
Abstract: Disruption management is one of the main concerns of any airline company, as it can influence its annualrevenue by upwards of 3%. Most of medium to large airlines have specialized teams which focus onrecovering disrupted schedules with very little automation. This paper presents a new automated approachto solve both the Aircraft Assignment Problem (AAP) and the Aircraft Recovering Problem (ARP), wherethe solutions are responsive to unforeseen events. The developed algorithm, based on Ant ColonyOptimization, aims to minimize the operational costs involved and is designed to schedule and rescheduleflights dynamically by using a sliding window. Test results tend to indicate that this approach is feasible,both in terms of time and quality of the proposed solutions.
