Advances in Air Transportation Management
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the civil aviation industry has experienced difficulties and challenges. For example, how to effectively maintain the social distance between passengers in the airport and the on-board space, the reduction in revenue and the problem of fleet and crew planning caused by the reduction in passenger flow. However, combined with the history of the past decades, it can be foreseen that the civil aviation industry will continue to develop rapidly in the future. After the pandemic, the aviation industry will still face problems such as the growth of air transport supply far below the growth of demand, which will lead to airline congestion, passenger-luggage congestion and mixed traffic problems. Besides, the civil aviation industry also has to be more responsible for environmental protection. It is of great importance to conduct a sustainable and environment-friendly solution for increasing air transportation efficiency.
Air traffic is a complex transportation system that is related to airlines, airplanes, airports and passengers. Therefore, the management of air traffic can be conducted from different perspectives. Researches on airline planning, aircraft scheduling, hub airport locating and airplane boarding/deboarding are urgently needed to improve the operating efficiency of air traffic.
This special issue aims to explore the methodological and technological advancements in understanding and solving air traffic problems. The topics include but not restricted to:
- New methods of aircraft scheduling and crew planning,
- Reduce fuel consumption and total emissions in operation,
- Pedestrian flow modeling and management regarding to civil aviation,
- Road traffic management around the airport,
- Modal competition between airlines and high-speed rail,
- Effect on airline industry and potential rectifications during pandemic and longer-term.
