Air traffic management (ATM) is a set of management, analytical, and operational techniques and tools, which are used to optimize the traffic flow and exploit the existing flight system capacity. However, one of the challenges in ATM use is the prevention of flight delays. Several methods such as data mining, artificial neural network evolutionary algorithm, and fuzzy logic are available in the ATM field. but the complexity level as the number of the available categories for classification increases, making it impossible to use these algorithms in air traffic management. This study is aimed to comprehensively evaluate the techniques applied in ATM and assess the tools and criteria in this context. also, show that the artificial neural network(ANN) and long short term memory(LSTM) algorithms are most frequently used in ATM.then a hybrid deep learning model for Mashad airport air traffic management systems was proposed. our results demonstrate that Among various clustering algorithms, K-means and deep learning methods are more efficient and widely used. Evaluation criteria such as accuracy rate, delay, The Root mean square error (RMSE) and mean square error(MSE) are more commonly applied in air traffic system evaluation.
