Abstract: 

Despite Airports importance as the main air transport infrastructure, few studies have focused on the analysis of airports in Iran.
Researchers have evaluated the efficiency of airports using cross sectional analysis, but there has not been any study that evaluate the performance of the Iranian airports using Dynamic analysis.
It is clear that for comprehensive performance assessment, cross sectional analysis is necessary, but this type of analysis does not cover all aspects of performance and Dynamic analysis should be used to achieve comprehensive results. This paper analyses efficiency of airports in 2013 through integrated DEA/AHP approach and Airports are ranked according to the results of this model. Then, the productivities of Iranian airports over the period of 2008–2013 are analyzed using the Malmquist index. The main objective of this, is to propose dynamic analysis for airport’s performance. The findings indicate that Ahvaz, Mehrabad and Mashad airport had higher performance Score Than other in 2013, and Abadan airport had the worst performance. But] in terms of productivity growth, airports in Surrey, Yazd and Abadan, have experienced the greatest improvement in their performance during 2008 to 2013. Also, in terms of the Malmquist index, the average rate of productivity showed a slight improvement in this period of time, and the core engine of this was increase in technological efficiency.
