PEOPLE: Lorenzo Castelli, Paola Bassi, Andrea Gasparin
The main activity of the Operations Research group at the University of Trieste is related to mathematical optimisation applied to logistics and transport, with emphasis on various aspects of air traffic management, including market-based mechanisms for ATFM and airport slot allocation, analytical models to integrate flexibility to flights in congested airspaces or subject to disruptions as during explosive volcanic eruptions, and pricing mechanisms to redistribute traffic across the European air network.
SWISS INTERNATIONAL AIR LINES
PEOPLE: Eric Nantier, Marie Carré, Marie-Sophie Vockeroth
Swiss International Air Lines (SWISS) is the national airline of Switzerland and serves over 100 destinations in 44 countries all over the world from its Zurich hub and the further Swiss international airport of Geneva. With a fleet of 99 aircrafts, SWISS transports around 17 million passengers every year. SWISS is committed on various fronts to the careful and sustainable use of natural resources and pursues a responsible attitude towards the environment as an integral part of its corporate culture. Various internal projects to reduce fuel burn and increase flight efficiency in general have been conducted. The average fuel consumption per 100 passenger kilometres has decreased from 4.39 liters in 2003 to 3.15 liters in 2018 thanks to the replacement of older aircrafts with B777-300 and the brand-new Bombardier C-Series.
