Abstract

The Fleet-Level Environmental Evaluation Tool (FLEET) is a simulation tool developed to assess the impact of new aviation technologies and policies on fleet-level environmental metrics of CO2 and NOx emissions and noise. Previous work with FLEET simulated the operations of a 'benevolent monopoly' airline in the US domestic and US-originating international air transportation network. This paper presents a newly developed capability to capture the more realistic case of airline competition, though still in abstract form via modeling competition between two typical airlines: a legacy carrier and a low-cost carrier. The resulting duopoly model is described and the simulation results are first compared to the prior monopoly model and then explored under various scenarios on fuel price levels.
