Noise Preferential Routes (NPR’s) are in place for departing jet aircraft and were developed as a performance route to direct departing jet aircraft over the least populated areas.
Four fixed noise monitors are in place, to measure the noise levels from aircraft and to ensure the airport is operating in compliance with the noise restrictions.
The LBA Noise Action Plan (NAP) brings together all our noise management activities into one living document. This includes specific actions that will be implemented by LBA to manage the effects of noise arising from airport activities, in order to minimise, as far as reasonably practicable, any adverse impact on the local communities surrounding the airport.
The airport has offered two noise insulation grant schemes in the past. The first scheme was associated with the runway extension in 1981 and the second scheme was associated with 24 hour availability in 1994.
