Optimation Of Aircraft Fleet Size Based On Fixed Schedule System
This research performed in an air transportation service company, PT. Merpati Nusantara Airlines. This research aims tofind the best flight schedule arrangement and to determine the minimum total of aircraft fleet size required to fulfill the schedule planned. In this research we willfind the optimum flight schedule for three airports, and finding how many aircrafts will be used to run the schedule. To solve such a fleet size problem, some mathematical models are needed Here, the mathematical model used is an algorithm for the minimum number of transport units to maintain a fixed schedule which is developed by T.E. Bartlett. By processing the data such as arrival and departure schedule we will find the minimum number of aircraft needed and the optimum flight schedule.
