Airport, competitiveness, Factor analysis, HFP (Hierarchy Fuzzy Process), Cargo service
This paper presents an analysis of the competitiveness status of China’s major airports (Shanghai Pudong Airport, Beijing Capital Airport, and Guangzhou Baiyun Airport) as well as Korea’s Incheon International Airport. The analysis assesses these airports using previous research, pilot tests, and the AHP and HFP Methods.
The analysis is based on four factors: service competitiveness, demand competitiveness, market competitiveness, and facility competitiveness.
Airport competitiveness was evaluated by using an algorithm derived from the reversed Fuzzy evaluation method. The results of the analysis and reversed Fuzzy evaluation show the four factors are ranked accordingly: 1st is service competitiveness, 2nd is demand competitiveness, 3rd is facility competitiveness and 4th is market competitiveness. The ranking is as follows, 1st is Incheon international Airport, 2nd is Beijing Capital Airport, 3rd is Shanghai Pudong Airport, and 4th is Guangzhou Baiyun Airport
