The objective of the internship is to develop better thresholds for minimum connection times between flights. These thresholds must be large enough to reduce the risk of passengers missing their connecting flights due to flight delays. On the other hand, lengthier connection times lead to increased costs as planes and crews must wait longer between flights. The best compromises will be found by using historical data on flight delays to evaluate the effect of varying thresholds on the plane and crew costs using optimization models.
