PLANNING AND MANAGEMENT OF AIRPORT GATES: A SIMULATION METHODOLOGY

This paper reports research directed toward the development of an improved airport gate planning and management tool. The context is one of aggregate cooperation of all gate positions at an airport and the preferential use of gate positions among various airlines at an airport. The application of the methodology to airport gate utilization generates information necessary to evaluate alternative gate assignment strategies under conditions of varying demand and varying supply -- number of gates and sizes. Toronto International Airport is used for the validation of the methodology.
