||In this thesis we take a look at dierent challenges facing Icelandair, a well
established single hub-and-spoke airline, in their schedule planning process.
The complexity of airline schedule planning is well known and dierent approaches
have been proposed. Today this complexity has been mixed with
increased levels of data uncertainty stemming from oil prices rising to unprecedented
levels. In this thesis we apply the framework proposed by Lohatepanont
and Barnhart adapting it to Icelandair's environment. Dierent
scenarios are examined and we also look at how Robust optimisation can
be incorporated into the schedule design process.
The results show that the framework, as applied, is quite well suited for
decision support at strategic levels.
