Abstract

This study attempts to identify the service and value factors that are given the highest importance by passengers travelling on domestic flights in Pakistan. A survey methodology involving personal interviews with 100 passengers was used on a convenience basis to gather the required information. This methodology has yielded data which was internally consistent in previous studies even though it is a non-probabilistic sampling technique. The study resulted in the following main findings. The results show that passengers of domestic flights in Pakistan attach the highest importance to the timeliness of flights. The next service dimension in order of importance was cabin service followed by cabin crew and convenience of booking.
