The purpose of this paper is to present a hybrid approach from techniques of data envelopment analysis (DEA) and VIKOR for analyzing airport performance. Techniques of DEA has been used along with inputs such as number of workers, terminal space, length of the band and outputs such as number of the flights, number of the transported passengers and amount of the luggage. The efficiency of the airports has been accounted by 49 different inputs and outputs synthesis by using DEA. So that by using efficiency points of the airports in different synthetic inputs and outputs, a decision matrix was made in that the rows of this matrix were airports and the columns were the efficiency marks of different models, and at the end VIKOR technique was used for ranking the airports. The results of the final ranking showed Zahedan airport in the first place and Isfahan airport in the last place.
