In this study, we set the average taxi time of flight as the objective of the gate and runway assignment problem. We present a gate and runway combinatorial optimization model with several restrictions such as restrictions of gate and runway time, type of aircraft and service. We design a Discrete Particle Swarm Optimization (DPSO) algorithm to solve this problem. Inspired by the genetic algorithm and combined with the neighborhood search, we propose a new location update strategy. Finally, numerical experiments were carried out on two cases where gate supplication is adequate and itís not, experimental results show that the discrete particle swarm algorithm achieved very good results.
