The allocation of airport time slots depends on the configuration of the airport, particularly on that of the runways. Thus, in order to allocate the slots optimally in an airport platform, we proposed two optimization models in this article.
The first model maximizes the airlines companies demands in the periods by taking into account the characteristics of the airport. This model assigns the flights' demands. It allows  determining the number of demands which we can satisfy in a given period of amplitude of one hour. It also helps to incorporate dynamically the unmet demand of j period to the j+1 period.
The second model aims to schedule the confirmed requests by the first assigning model. We are interested in the optimal repartition of the confirmed requests, while minimizing the flights delays. These models are used to optimize the air-traffic management of the Diass airport. Therefore, we have developed and implemented two algorithms for the resolution of these two models. The ressults of experimentations in Cplex show that our algorithms are efficient comparing to those obtained by the reference works existing in this field. The data used are those of the International Blaise Diagne Airport (AIBD).
