Abstract

The efficiency of commercial jet airliner flights into Tokyo International Airport, the busiest airport in Japan, is analyzed using Secondary Surveillance Radar (SSR) data. Each flight is reconstructed from surveillance data combined with meteorological and aircraft performance information in order to estimate fuel flow and thence fuel consumption, and is compared with a trajectory optimized for fuel consumption and flight time by a dynamic programming method based on the same meteorological and performance information. The comparison quantifies the potential benefits of ideal flight trajectories, and introduces effective measures to increase the efficiency and capacity of airspace.
