Abstract

Increasing air traffic and airport congestion calls for solutions to improve traffic throughput. In this paper, we evaluate one solution, Flight-deck Interval Management and its underlying logic, particularly in terms of its utility. An environment to simulate traffic engaged in interval management on the most common arrival routes toward Tokyo International Airport was set up and run as a large-scale Monte Carlo simulation on the K-Supercomputer. The results show that under low wind conditions in particular, spacing goal times with a standard deviation of less than 5 s can be achieved and a speed tolerance mode can reduce the number of speed commands without compromising performance.
