Having confidence to quality of air transportation needs evaluation of airports performance. the purpose of this paper evaluating efficiency of airports by DEA ( Data Envelopment Analysis). There for; inputs like number of human resources, terminal mensuration, Band length and outputs like number of flight, number of transferred passengers and amount of carrying cargo use in DEA technique for classification airports to efficiency and non-efficiency. Then, were identified source airports for non-efficiency airports. Also, were identified sensitive indexes effects on efficiency of airports to present possibility of airport's improvement. From selective airports in this research containing 21 airports; Emam, Mehrabad, Ahvaz, Rasht, Sari, Gorgan and Birjand airports had maximum efficiency. Number of human resources of airport were identified as less sensitive index and terminal mansuration were identified as most sensitive index in efficiency of Iran airports. Finally, were used crossing efficiency evaluation technique for ranking airports. this ranking showed Ahvaz airport has first rank and Mehrabad airport has latest rank.
