This paper describes a multi-indicator assessment and minimization problem focused on aviation "Community" noise. The model explores a combined noise and emission objective for airfreight movements at Luxembourg's Findel Airport. Community noise is evaluated via four population impact indicators emissions are tabulated from in-flight segments in the proximity of the airport and from the contribution of taxiing. A set of scenarios based on trajectory, aircraft scheduling, fleet composition, operational procedures are implemented in software. An integer programming methodology is used to search for minimal environmental impact. An on/off switch allows for an evaluation of each indicator in the objective. Different impacts on the population are explored in a case study involving the Cargolux Airlines International S.A. © 2009 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
