—South-East Asia is considered to be one of the fastest traffic growing regions in the world. Due to congested air traffic or bad weather conditions accidents happened in the history. This paper proposes a new mathematical model that finds optimal routes by taking into account delay cost, controller’s capacity, departure and arrival capacities of an airport, waypoints capacity, routes capacity, rerouting options by using actual flight paths and considering “fairness” to aircrafts as well. The model can be applied to large scale airspace like ASEAN airspace.
