Voluntary cooperation on noise emissions ceiling at Frankfurt airport
BARIG accepts the presented voluntary cooperation on a noise emission ceiling at the airport in Frankfurt.
The airline association BARIG (Board of Airline Representatives in Germany) accepts the today presented voluntary cooperation on a noise emissions ceiling at the airport in Frankfurt.
On that point, BARIG Secretary General Michael Hoppe states, “We continue to advocate a fair balance of interests with residents living in close proximity to the airport in Frankfurt. BARIG’s member airlines are actively taking numerous steps to keep noise pollution as low as possible. This includes active soundproofing through the use of modern and quieter aircraft and the review of optimized approach routes. Consequently, BARIG accepts the agreement on a noise emissions ceiling at Frankfurt airport as mutual measure and result of the mediation process revolving around the airport expansion.”
In this regard, BARIG points out the great importance of air traffic in Frankfurt to jobs, economic prosperity and mobility in the Rhine-Main area and beyond. Restrictions on capacities or further limitations concerning operating hours, on the other hand, would be unacceptable. Such measures would have both immediate and sustainable negative effects on Frankfurt and the aviation location Germany as a whole.
