Reducing Brisbane flightpath noise

Brisbane Airport Corporation welcomes the release by Airservices Australia of the Brisbane New Parallel Runway Flight Paths Post Implementation Review Draft Report.

“This report contains significant recommendations for the reduction of noise impacts on Brisbane residents. Some aspects will take time for Airservices Australia to implement due to the complex nature of air traffic design and management and passenger safety, but they represent the best opportunity for improvements for nearby communities,” according to Brisbane Airport Corporation’s CEO Gert-Jan de Graaff. 

Brisbane Airport supports all 4 packages of the recommendations: 

Package 1: the need for strong, transparent, and representative governance over flight path changes 

Package 2: maximising flights over the water to reduce the impact on suburbs 

Package 3: reducing the frequency and concentration of flights over communities through advanced navigation technology, changes to non-jet operations, merge points, hold downs 

Package 4: optimising the performance of the wider Brisbane airspace system to deliver long term improvements.

Brisbane Airport Corporation will continue engaging with residents, Airservices Australia, CASA and our airline partners to explore additional opportunities to minimise the impact of flights on Brisbane suburbs.  

Residents are can provide feedback on the Airservices Australia website until Sunday 20 November.
