Air Traffic over Europe

Air Traffic over Europe is simulated using MATSim. The model was created by VSP, TU Berlin based on data provided by OAG Aviation. It can be nicely seen how the air traffic increases around 5 o'clock (GMT), which corresponds to 6 o'clock in most central European countries, the time the ban on night flights is lifted at many airports. The model is currently improved to take capacity constraints at airports, like runway capacities, into account.
