The Taoyuan International Airport in Taiwan encountered service capacity bottlenecks for insufficient facilities before COV-19 break. In order to increase the service capacity efficiency on check-in, security checks, and customs clearance, the Ministry of Transportation and Communications R.O.C. (MOTC), Taiwan, rerouted the airport traffic flow by implementing the in-town check-in (ITCI) concept to decrease crowding in the airport waiting hall. This research examined the structure of critical

The three CSF dimensions were: first-level hierarchy "advantageous environments," followed by "marketing" and "service value," which is a second-level hierarchy. The study concluded that the third level item of "transferred vehicles system and management" can play an important key role in ITCTs and "users' usage preference" has a high correlation to ITCT management strategy. Those findings are expected to be a valuable reference as operating guidelines for Taoyuan Airport MRT Company and management strategy for airport companies.
