dc.description.abstractIntroduction Aviation delays are on the rise as a consequence of disproportionate growth of the air transportation demand. According to the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) in fiscal year 1987, u. S. commercial air carriers enplaned a total of 444.3 million passengers. Of this total, 415.0 million were counted as domestic enplanements and 29.3 million as international enplanements [FAA, 1988a]. Over the 12-year forecast period, domestic enplanements are forecast to increase by an average annual rate of 4.6 percent… From the economical point of view, current statistics show that approximately three billion dollars are paid by air travelers due to the delay in U.S. alone( Aviation Week & Space Technology, 1989] â ¢ Therefore, proper actions are required to identify and facilitate a reduction in flight delays and prevent their projected growth...en
