In this article, a large-scale simulation model of Istanbul Airport has been developed. The aim of the study is to analyze the aircraft arrival and departure operations and to evaluate the efficiency of runway use. Runways often form the bottlenecks of airports and the assessment of their capacity is of great importance for airport management. The study consists of data collection, analysis of data, establishment of the simulation model, verification of the model, design of the model and analysis of the results. Data on arrivals and departures of aircraft at the airport were used as input in ARENATM, a sophisticated discrete event simulation software, to create a runway capacity estimation model by analyzing more than 25 thousand records, including 1 month. The simulation model was created with the arrival, departure and taxi stages of aircraft, which have the most significant impact on capacity, as well as the number of passengers. As a result of the analyzes made, it was estimated whether Istanbul Airport will reach the targeted passenger capacity in 2050. The model appears to be very efficient in evaluating runway capacity.
Bu makalede İstanbul Havalimanının büyük ölçekli bir simülasyon modeli geliştirilmiştir. Çalışmanın amacı, uçak geliş ve kalkış operasyonlarının analizi ile pist kullanımının verimliliğinin değerlendirilmesidir. Havalimanlarının darboğazlarını genellikle pistler oluşturmaktadır ve kapasitesinin değerlendirilmesi havalimanı yönetimi için büyük önem taşımaktadır. Çalışma veri toplama, verilerin analizi, simülasyon modelinin kurulması, modelin doğrulanması, modelin tasarımı ve sonuçların analizi kısımlarından oluşmaktadır. Uçakların havalimanına gelişlerine ve kalkışlarına ilişkin veriler, 1 ayı içeren ve 25 binden fazla kayıt analiz edilerek, pist kapasite tahmin modeli oluşturmak için karmaşık bir ayrık olay simülasyon yazılımı olan ARENATM programında girdi olarak kullanılmıştır. Simülasyon modeli, kapasite üzerinde en önemli etkiye sahip olan uçakların gelişi, kalkışı ve taksi aşaması aynı zamanda yolcu sayısı bilgileri ile oluşturulmuştur. Yapılan analizler sonucunda İstanbul Havalimanının 2050 yılında hedeflenen yolcu kapasitesine ulaşıp ulaşamayacağı tahmin edilmiştir. Model, pist kapasitesinin değerlendirilmesinde oldukça verimli görünmektedir.
