Research on Flight Delay Based on Fuzzy Evaluation Algorithm
Abstract: In recent years, since airspace restrictions and the volume of passenger traffic are increasing, the rate of flight delay is rising rapidly and the contradiction about it is outstanding. Flight delay event not only holds up passengers’ time, but also makes the airlines suffer a lot. So a scientific and reasonable guidance is necessary to reduce the delay effect. This paper firstly establishes a method to assess the degree of airport delays and get all factors which caused the flight delays quantification, and ultimately we offer a proposal to deal with the flow factor, which is the principal reason for flight delays.
