Finding also shows that service quality and trust, directly have a positive but not significant impact on customer loyalty. In contrast, company image and satisfaction directly have a positive and significant effect on customer loyalty. The role of customer satisfaction as a mediating variable shows that service quality, trust, and corporate image indirectly have a positive and significant effect on customer loyalty.Implications/Originality/Value: So it is concluded that service quality, trust and a higher corporate image will be able to provide higher loyalty if customer satisfaction as an intervening variable also increases.
