Abstract. In this paper, the algorithm for finding a Hamiltonian cycle in an intuitionistic fuzzy graph (IFG) is proposed, based on the theories of intuitionistic fuzzy sets (IFSs) and of index matrices (IMs). The aim of the paper is to extend the algorithm to find a fuzzy Hamiltonian cycle (FHC) in an IFG to the intuitionistic fuzzy (IFHC) using the IFSs and IMs concepts. An intuitionistic fuzzy graph example about network of Wizz air airlines is modeled by the extended IM to illustrate the proposed algorithm. In the paper also are introduced for the first time three index-type operations over IMs.
