Airline fleet assignment : a state of the art

Abstract : With the hard competitive environment of the air transportation sector, airlines have to cope with more and more complex and large optimization problems at planning and operations levels, especially concerning the fleet management. One of the major tasks consists in assigning profitable aircraft type to each flight, given the sets of flights and aircraft of an airline. The assignment has to meet a large variety of requirements and has to deal with the complementary objectives of maximizing revenue (by matching seat capacity to passenger demand) and minimizing costs (such as fuel, maintenance operations, airport gating ?) over the operated network. In this communication a state of the art relative to the fleet assignment models adopted in the Operations Research literature, is proposed. The different models are compared in terms of applicability to real life problems in a short term operational context. Side problems such as maintenance planning and crew assignment are also considered while performances such as robustness to common perturbations or to strong disruptions are of interest.
