The temporary closure of airports usually results in significant perturbations of flight schedules. For example, typhoons or periods of heavy rain happen from time to time in Taiwan each year. The airports usually have to be temporarily closed, and many flights are then canceled or delayed. The poor scheduling of flights, or an entire fleet, may result in a substantial loss of profit and decreased levels of service for airline carriers. Thus, effective and efficient flight/fleet incident management is important for carriers in order to regain their normal services as soon as possible following a schedule perturbation.
