A METHOD TO DETERMINE THE DELAYS OF LANDING AIRCRAFT WITH RESPECT TO RUNWAY CAPACITY
An analytic queuing model, characterized by a Poisson arrival process and by a deterministic service time, is developed to give accurate estimates of aircraft landing delays. The result is confirmed with the results of the Monte Carlo simulation. The Monte Carlo simulation is used to model those aspects which cannot be accounted for in an analytic method. The model for the Monte Carlo simulations is described.
