Noise Management

The Airport Authority's commitment to our neighbouring communities includes managing airport noise to balance the community's need for safe, convenient 24-hour air travel with enjoyable urban living.

Noise associated with an airport can be attributed to a number of causes including aircraft take-offs and landings as well as engine run-ups (tests performed on aircraft engines after maintenance to ensure safety) and general noise from ground service equipment.

To manage noise and our community commitments we have a comprehensive aeronautical noise management program that includes:

  • Consultations with the Aeronautical Noise Management Committee
  • A five-year noise management plan
  • Published noise abatement procedures
  • An airport noise monitoring and flight tracking system
  • A complaint management and response system
