An Airline Fleet Planning Method Constraint with Minimal Cost
Abstract—The fleet planning is to assign the appropriate aircraft to the corresponding routes while meeting the passenger demand, thereby reducing the operating costs of airlines. However, the current fleet planning research does not take the huge costs and improvement plans of regional passenger aircraft operations into account. In this paper, a multi-objective fleet planning model that minimizes prime cost of airlines is firstly established considering passenger distribution on each route, five costs and corresponding constraints. Sec-ondly, the linear weighting method is used to transform the model into a single-target fleet planning model. Finally, based on the real data of a domestic airline, LINGO software is used to solve the model from the perspective of conventional optimization and mainline-regional jet hybrid, and the original scheme of the com-pany is optimized and analyzed respectively. Comparing with the optimization results with the original scheme, it is shown that the multi-objective fleet planning model proposed in this paper has both theoretical and prac-tical significance.
