It also employs Improvement Performance Analysis using a fuzzy expert system which renders the managerial implications pertaining to identification of improvement areas. The findings of the study, exhibit that the service quality of both the airports, BKK and DMK, is satisfactory, however some areas require improvement which was identified and suggested.
