Abstract

In this research, we use integer linear programming to model the fleet assignment problem. The purpose of this model is to assign the most appropriate fleet types  of  domestic flight schedules in Nok Air airline and to find the minimized operating cost. In addition, we have determined the optimal number of aircraft grounded overnight at each airport. The results revealed that we found the optimal solution by LINGO with the minimized operating cost and the optimal number of aircraft grounded overnight at each airport.
