This course is offered in T1 and focuses on: airline ground operations (including passenger facilitation and aircraft turnaround operations), delay data collection, delay data analysis, delay development modelling, airline networks and the emerging concept of robust airline scheduling. The rationale of this course is to provide students with practical airline operations knowledge, coupled with the use of mathmatical models in delay analysis, leading to the study of ways to improve the robustness of airline schedule in actual operations. Hence, some units of this course may contain mathematical models that require extra efforts in self-study. On-going assistance and virtual classroom discussion on Moodle will be organised. Basic statistical knowledge is ideal for this course. Students with airline operations experience may be able to grasp this course quickly; however, prior operations experience is not essential for studying this course.
