The objective of the proposed study is to investigate the influence of physical environment of the airport on passengers’ delight and satisfaction. Studies on the physical environment impact on customer delight and satisfaction are still limited, especially in the context of international airports.

The study will opt a convenience sampling method, with a total of 400 sets of questionnaires will be distributed to local and international passengers at Kota Kinabalu International Airports (KKIA).
