Amsterdam’s Schiphol capacity is limited to 500,000 air traffic movements per year and currently is reaching the limit. For that reason, Schiphol Group decided to divert the non-hub related traffic to the regional airport in Lelystad. This airport will be upgraded to handle commercial traffic, mainly low cost carriers. We used a divide and conquer approach in SIMIO modules in which we included the main elements in the system namely airspace, runway, taxiways and airport stands for analyzing the future performance and potential operative problems of the airport. An analysis of the different operative areas of the system was performed and we could identify problems due to the emergent dynamics once the different subsystems interacted between them.
