Air Freighter Schedule Planning: A Dynamic Programming Optimisation Approach

The work will offer an improvement and extension to an existing research stream on dynamic programming, making a novel application to air cargo operations, in collaboration with Airbus. The project aims to provide a decision- support tool for optimised schedule planning that represents real-life air cargo operations with detailed constraints within a reasonable computation time. Results could be an improvement to those obtained from current (often Excel based) network planning models used by many airlines in both content and computation time. This work provides the foundation for future research on integrated airline schedule planning through dynamic programming both on air cargo- and passenger operations.
