Air transport is vital as the important transports mode in Malaysia.It is offers an advantage of speed and can be used for long distance transport.But in air transport, there are several problems that always face by the user and also the airline industries. The aim of this study is to evaluate the relationship between the reliability of airline service and the weather condition. The weather conditions are one of main problem that always occur in air transport system. The characteristic of the climate in Malaysia are uniform temperature, high humidity and copious rainfall. Winds are generally light.Situated in the equatorial doldrums area, it is extremely rare to have a full day with completely clear sky even during periods of severe drought.Despite it, it is also rare to have a stretch of a few days with completely no sunshine except during the northeast monsoon seasons.It is can explain that the weather condition in Malaysia include such as heavy raining, fogs and wind.All of these situations will influence the efficiency of the airline service.It is because weather condition will cause of flight cannot be operate or easily to say the flight cannot fly according to their schedule setup.Most of the air transports are uncertain and the unreliable because these are controlled by weather condition.Bad weather can cause of delay problems. The flights will delay by hours or days accordingly to the weather.
