This chapter investigates the models and algorithms for implementing the concept of Dynamic Airspace Management. Three models are discussed. First two models are about how to use or adjust air route dynamically in order to speed up air traffic flow and reduce delay. The third model gives a way to dynamically generate the optimal sector configuration for an air traffic control center to both balance the controller’s workload and save control resources. The first model, called the Dynamic Air Route Open-Close Problem, is the first step toward the realization of Dynamic Airspace Management. It designs a pricing mechanism for civil users and military users once they need to use each other’s resources and decides what routes will be open and for how long the routes keep open for a certain user during a given time period. The second model, called the Dynamic Air Route Adjustment Problem, provides a new approach to optimize air traffic flow with the option to adjust or reconstruct the air route
