Abstract

Mexico City airport is located close to the center of
the city and is Mexico’s busiest airport which is considered
congested. One of the consequences of airport congestion are
flight delays which in turn decrease costumer’s satisfaction. Air
traffic control has been using a ground delay program as a tool
for alleviating the congestion problems, particularly in the most
congested slots of the airport. This paper uses a model-based
approach for analyzing the effectiveness of the ground delay
program and rules. The results show that however the rules
applied seem efficient, there is still room for improvement in
order to make the traffic management more efficient.
