There are various factors influencing airport competitiveness, but it is usually difficult for the decision-makers to clearly understand the roles of these influential factors of airport competitiveness. In order to address this, this study aims at developing a two-stage interval best-worst method for determining the relative importance based on the multiplicative constraint. A total of twenty influential factors in five dimensions including airport capacity, network connectivity, service quality, operations and management, and external environment were summarized, then, the developed weighting method was employed to prioritize these influential factors, and they were categorized into three level, namely, significantly group, moderately important group, and less important group. Some policy implications were also proposed for building competitive airports and for improving the competitiveness of airports.
