Environmental pollution especially air pollution is a growing problem related with very heavy vehicle traffic in the metropolitans, fuels usage for heating systems and power generation plants, and increasing industrial activities. Measurements of the air pollutants in the urban area are important due to environmental health related issue. Air pollution modelling approaches also are very complex process; many methods are mostly used for modelling the complicate and linear/non-linear application methods. In this study, modelling methods were discussed to explain the impact on air quality and pollution level in Jeddah city of Saudi Arabia. Environmental pollutants concentrations data of PM10 were obtained for modelling of the air quality in the Jeddah ambient atmosphere. Using Air quality standards of Saudi Arabia was compared by considering the pollutants’ concentration as independent variables. Different comparison factors were used for pollutant according to their importance and concentration in changing time periods. The success of modelling method was searched with checking data for different city region established by recent meteorology and environment to obtain the pollutants levels in Jeddah city centre. According to the resent investigations, fuzzy based ANFIS model has success as comprehensive instrument for estimation and point of view for the air quality and components.
