DLR Low Cost Monitor: Eurowings aircraft on the apron

Approximately 30 percent of all flights from Germany are now operated by low-cost airlines. DLR's Low Cost Monitor report has been published every spring and autumn since 2006.

View inside the crisis centre

During a campaign as part of the EU’s ‘Driving Innovations in Crisis Management for European Resilience’ (DRIVER) project, a crisis management centre was established in the Air Traffic Validation Center – U-FLY – operated by the German Aerospace Center (DLR).

The focus of research is to examine how both systems, air traffic and airports, evolve with time under certain conditions and how a desired status for either one can be achieved. To find answers to these questions, it is necessary to analyse current development, to examine possible future developments of these systems, for example through simulation studies, to build software tools to help assessing conditions and avoid undesirable situations, to develop methods to manage airports efficiently, and to observe the effects of these measures.
