WP2 - Representative Route Network and Fleet
This work package aims at deriving characteristic aircraft design requirements, primarily payload and range. These requirements are determined based on an analysis of the worldwide aircraft fleet and route structure for future Entries into Service (EIS). This comprises the following sub-objectives to be achieved by this WP:
The work to be carried out in WP2 is subdivided into four tasks contributing to the sub-objectives:
An existing model chain for the prediction of future aircraft movements will be extended and updated. The applied air traffic forecast model consists of three network layers:
the passenger origin-destination demand network,
the routes network and,
the aircraft movements network.
The included passenger air traffic demand model (layer 1) is updated and calibrated with respect to the latest passenger demand figures. Additionally, a frequency capacity-model calculating flight frequencies and aircraft size is adapted and a fleet renewal model is updated using up-to-date order book data (layer 3).
