The ramp area is a complex portion of the airport, often congestion and interactions between aircraft limit Efficient flows for arriving and departing aircraft. Aircraft taxiing Traffic is constrained by minimum aircraft separation, and geometry of airports. In this paper, we present a new approach to assign gate to minimize ramp congestion and propose a simulation model to predict the operation time within the congested ramp. The optimized gate assignment reduces ramp operation time up by 50%. In addition the estimation of ramp operation times is more accurate when applying the optimized gate assignment algorithm.
