Airport gate allocation problem refers to the search for optimal assignment of flights to gates at an airport. Assignment of flight to gates has become very complex nowadays, especially for a big size airport. In this study,the airport gate allocation problem is solved using a recently introduced meta-heuristic called simulated Kalman filter (SKF). The SKF is driven by the estimation capability of a well-known Kalman filter. The objective of this study is to minimize the total walking distance. Since the airport gate allocation problem is a combinatorial optimization problem, the original SKF is extended such that it can be used to solve combinatorial optimization problems. A small case study with 15 flights and 16 gates has been chosen. Preliminary results show that SKF is a promising algorithm for solving the airport gate allocation problem.
