In the study carried out in the Ordu province of Turkey, 16 criteria to be used in airport site selection were handled and evaluated by subjecting them to successive processes in the GIS environment. Each criterion was weighted with the AHP method, and a map of suitability for airport site selection was obtained in the GIS environment using these weights. The most suitable place for the airport in Ordu province was detected by evaluating the nine regions determined according to the resulting map. Then, the alternative areas preferred from the most suitable areas were evaluated according to the total scores from the classification intervals with a scenario where the criterion weights were assumed to be equal. Finally, sensitivity analysis was performed to identify those who played an active role in the site selection analysis or not. Thus the sensitivity of the site selection analysis was tested
