Air Traffic over Europe

In this scenario, 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 air traffic increases around 5:00 A.M. (GMT), which corresponds to 6 A.M. in most central European countries: the time the ban on night flights is lifted at many airports.

The model is currently being improved to take capacity constraints at airports, like runway capacities, into account.
