The airlines industry is prone to disruption due to various causes. Whilst an airline may not be able to control the causes of disruption, it can reduce the impact of a disruptive event, such as a mechanical failure, with its response by revising the schedule. Potential actions include swapping aircraft, delaying flights and cancellations. This paper will present our research into how symbiotic simulation could potentially be used to improve the response to a disruptive event by evaluating potential revised schedules. Due to the large solution space, exhaustive searches are infeasible. Our research is investigating the use of multi-fidelity models to help guide the search of the optimisation algorithm, leading to good solutions being generated within the time constraints of disruption management.
