Noise Management Plan

As part of our Ground Lease with the federal government, Vancouver Airport Authority is responsible for managing noise associated with airport operations within 10-nautical miles of the airport. To address these requirements, we’ve developed a comprehensive noise management program to manage noise impacts from aircraft and airport operations.


2019-2023 Noise Management Plan

The Noise Management Plan is an integral part of advancing the goals and objectives of the aeronautical noise management program. The current five-year Noise Management Plan (2019-2023) was developed in close consultations with the members of the YVR Aeronautical Noise Management Committee and identifies 12 key areas of work as follows:

  • Awareness - Community
  • Awareness - Industry
  • Night-time Operations
  • YVR Aeronautical Noise Management Committee
  • Aircraft Noise and Operations Monitoring System
  • Temporary Noise Monitoring
  • Run-ups
  • Performance-based Navigation Procedures / Flight Path Changes
  • Noise Abatement Procedures
  • Managing Capacity
  • YVR Float Plane Operations
  • Land Use Planning

As a responsible neighbor, we ensure that YVR’s aeronautical noise management program is proactive and transparent. We are committed to finding ways to minimize noise disturbances while balancing the need for safe, convenient 24-hour air travel.
