    Introduction: The safety of enroute operations of aircraft engaged in public transport has been a continuous concern since the early days of air transportation. There are a variety of inflight emergency situations which ...
  • Chan, Yupo (Cambridge, Mass. : The Laboratory, 1972, 1972)
    One of the routing and scheduling problems faced by an airline is to configure a route network. It seeks to answer the following two questions: First, should scheduled service be provided for a city pair market? Second, ...
  • Lee, Boon Chai (Cambridge, Mass. : MIT, Dept. of Aeronautics & Astronautics, Flight Transportation Laboratory, 1986, 1986)
    This thesis finds solutions to the routing problem with service choices which is formulated as a capacitated minimum cost flow circulation problem with GUB constraints. The routing problem with service choices is solved ...
  • Chan, Wing Keong ([Cambridge, Mass. : MIT, Dept. of Aeronautics & Astronautics, Flight Transportation Laboratory, 1987], 1987)
    Methods used for scheduling aircraft itineraries to desired maintenance bases and similar methods for specifying delivery routings from any number of sources to any number of required locations have been developed. The ...
