Abstract: This thesis focuses on the Airport Gate Assignment Problem both on the daily planning stage and the real-time recovery of flight schedule disruptions. We extended the integer programming model in literature to include more assignment criteria in practical airport operations. To improve the efficiency of the linearized quadratic IP model while taking into account the transfer passengers, we proposed the 3-terminal AGAP Model and Multi-terminal AGAP Model. The Multi-terminal AGAP Model is then explored to a Multi-pier AGAP Model which can be applied to pier-finger layout airport terminal. With the understanding of the need of the real-time gate assignment recovery in reality, we developed a systematic model-combined two-stage Real-time Gate Recovery Policy to solve the real-time flight schedule disruption problem. Experiment results of the IP Gate Recovery Model with the actual data from one international airport show the possibility of applying the IP model to solve large-scale real problems.
