AIRLINE FLIGHT SCHEDULING: USING LINEAR PROGRAMMING

Due to rapidly and unpredictably changing environment, airline schedules can currently no longer be prepared a long time ahead of implementation. These changes increase the importance of flexible computer-based planning systems. This report briefly summarizes a research effort to develop a program for one such sub-problem, namely the determination of the best departure times for the aircraft, given set of flights and the distribution of passenger demand throughout the day. The main focus of this report is the linear programming formulation. However, some preliminary scheduling results for a prototype network are included as well.
