Abstract:

The impact of investment at an individual airport is felt throughout the National Airport System by reduction of delays at other airports in the system. A GPSS model was constructed to simulate the propagation of delays through a nine-airport system. The model is largely based on, and calibrated to, scheduled air carrier itineraries through the system. It calculates statistics and costs for landing, takeoff, and gate arrival delays. Author
