We propose a new approach in leveraging the highway cell transmission model (CTM) to the airspace in the form of a multiobjective optimization that trades between maximizing throughput and minimizing delay. The main flows of air traffic are determined via a clustering method and converted into a network of cells. The model is a multicommodity traffic flow Integer Program where the constraints are relaxed slightly from the CTM to examine strategies for achieving optimal throughput and delay.
