Abstract

The aviation industry witnessed a severe decline in the volume of traffic due to the spread of Covid-19 in 2020. The profits of major airlines plummeted. The previous passenger experience-oriented flight arrangement strategies no longer adapt to the rapid-changing market, and even make things escalated. Thus, an optimized model based on integer linear programming was proposed aims at cutting down the overall cost of operation. Key variables like oil price, aircraft types, capacity are considered in this model. We testify our model on a data set that recorded transportation information of six busiest airways in China. Results show our model can help airlines save money effectively and productively.
