Abstract

Green aviation fleet management is a proactive method used to enhance environmental protection without exacerbating climate change. The aviation industry needs to improve its aviation fleet management strategies given corporate social responsibility (CSR) policy and environmental considerations. Green aviation fleet management development involves complex relationships with technology, operation, infrastructure and economic performance. Hence, this study proposes a multi-criteria decision making (MCDM) approach which integrates the decision-making trial and evaluation laboratory (DEMATEL), analytic network processes (ANP) and zero-one goal programming (ZOGP) to achieve optimal green aviation fleet management strategy decisions. Our evaluation shows that the proposed mixed strategy portfolio for green aviation fleet management can be determined using limited resources. Moreover, the model developed herein could be applied more widely to various green aviation fleet management situations.
